Plastic bags are the most found item in our local rivers. Number three is expanded polystyrene foam (commonly known as Styrofoam). Plastics are ruining our waters. The D.C. chapter is committed to keeping our local waters clean from this trash. We are running our Ban The Foam campaign to keep this trash out of our local waters.

Read more about our foam ban initiatives here.
