Cumbys come into compliance
Cumberland Farms is no longer serving their 99 cent coffee to go in Styrofoam containers, coming into compliance with the Amherst polystyrene packaging ban that goes into effect January 1st.
They are now using paper coated in wax with a high gloss plastic-like exterior which certainly feels the same as polystyrene.
I buried one of each variety in my back yard and will dig them up in 25 years and let you know if the new one passes the biodegradable test.
Meanwhile, Dunkin' Donuts (at least the one on University Drive) is still using polystyrene; but hey, they have another two days.
