STUDENTS/TEACHERS INSPIRE LAUSD TO TAKE ENVIRONMENTAL LEAD
LAUSD is proud to recognize the students at Thomas Starr King Middle School for their initiative in raising awareness about the negative impact of styrofoam use at our school cafeterias.  With the guidance of their environmentally aware teachers, these students built a 30-foot “styrofoam monster” out of the trays from their cafeteria to put the bulk produced on display in their garden, and to show what their school alone was contributing to landfills.  
Today’s press conference at King Middle School announced the ban on styrofoam instituted on July 1st.  Superintendent Dr. John Deasy praised the students for speaking out.  “The impact across more than 900 school sites is huge.  That’s legacy,” Dr. Deasy told the students.  “We’re incredibly proud of the students at this school and what you’ve done for us.”  
As part of LAUSD’s commitment to becoming the greenest school district in the nation, we have phased out all styrofoam materials. The U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services also recently declared the Styrene in polystyrene containers “reasonably anticipated to be a carcinogen,” and we don’t want to take any chances.  Removing styrofoam from our cafeterias reduces costs attributed to having less volume in trash bags and less clean up.  The banning of styrofoam at LAUSD also supports the Board’s initiative of district-wide sustainability.  LAUSD’s new recycling contract is designed to reduce trash waste hauling and increase environmental social responsibility.
Dr. Deasy said, “We want to be custodians of not only doing right by students, but by the planet they will inherit.” He went on to issue a challenge to all other school districts in California to follow our lead.  
School Board Member Bennett Kayser also praised the ban, pointing out that 25 years ago,  he was a science teacher at Thomas Starr King Middle School.  “As a former science and health teacher at King Middle School, and now it’s Board Member, I am very proud of the students, teachers, volunteers and community members that set all of these anti-styrofoam policy changes in motion,” said Mr. Kayser.  ”With our students leading the way, LAUSD is once again on the forefront of positive change.”
LA Councilmembers Ed Reyes and Paul Kortez spoke out about the dangers of styrofoam and their support for SB-568 which would ban polystyrene food containers state wide.
