SeaWorld Parks Will No Longer Serve Foam Bowls or Plates. As part of conservation efforts by SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment the company has decided to remove all foam plates, trays, and bowls from their 12 theme parks around the world.
Andrew Ngo, Vice President of SeaWorld, stated that reducing the company’s enviormental footprint is an important part of the company’s mission. This effort alone should keep about 14 million polysterene foam food dishes from being throw away each year.
Another reason for the decision was to help with recycling efforts since polysterene is rather hard to recycle and does not decompose easily. An alternative to the theme parks dinging dishes has not been announced yet, but will more than likely be a plant based product that can be safely decompose or recycled when disposed by guests, but sturdy enough for use and storage.
This is not the first conservation effort made by SeaWorld when it comes to food and beverages served in their theme parks. SeaWorld has already removed the use of plastic straws and coffee stirrers to prevent them from polluting oceans, rivers, waterways, etc.
We love seeing our favorite parks leading the way to healthier enviormental impacts by global businesses and setting a great example for owning the ability to change for the better. Hopefully other parks and entertainment locations follow suit with efforts of there own.
