Styrofoam substitute

Styrofoam substitute

Not strictly rainforest related, I agree. But very much a global issue for us all.

Styrofoam is apparently a $20 billion dollar business in the US (according to TechCrunch writer Erick Schonfeld) but regardless, we end up with masses of it. Land filling it is a nightmare and it probably makes up a disproportional volume of the Pacific Garbage Patch.

What if we could find a green solution to the problem? Well this TED video, presented by Eben Bayer might be the answer.
