Somerville, Massachusetts, home to over a dozen Dunkin' Donuts locations, voted to ban the use of polystyrene takeout food containers, including coffee cups. The Board of Aldermen voted unanimously for the ban, despite opposition from the local food industry, including Dunkin' Donuts. With more municipalities becoming aware and banning styrofoam, it's a good time for Dunkin' Donuts to change their ways.
For the long weekend, I propose that we spread the word on this campaign. Tweet, retweet, post on Facebook, send to your friends. Let's reach our goal of 1,000 signatures and beyond!
