So this is kind of a random topic but something that I feel pretty good about. As a person who is very passionate about the environment, I found something that I could do with all the wasteful styrofoam coolers that we get every month. I researched local styrofoam recycling in my area to see if there even was such a thing and found a place not super close but not terribly far away. So I went to there and found their email and asked them if I could drop off my coolers. Right away I got a response from a really nice employee saying that even though they normally only accept styrofoam products from local in-town residents, that they would make an exception and take them from me as well and that I could drop them off whenever. And when I got there and told the man that I had permission to drop them he was super nice and said come by anytime and feel free to ask for me. So what I do now is every time I collect about 10 or so coolers, I take a 35 to 40 minute drive to the recycling facility and drop them off. Something small but makes me feel good to do it and not dispose of them irresponsibly. Just a tip for anyone who may be interested in trying to find a place in their area
