Goodbye Styrofoam

This is sweet. Way to go, Seattle:

"The City of Seattle is requiring all food service businesses to find packaging alternatives to throw-away food service containers, cups and other products in all food service businesses - restaurants, grocery stores, delis, coffee shops and institutional cafeterias. By July 1, 2010, all food service products designed for one-time-use must be replaced with one-time use products that are either compostable or recyclable."

Adios plastic. 

Food vendors at Safeco Stadium have already switched over to corn-based utensils and cups. I'd stay away from the chili though, I hear the spoons bend when confronted with hot food.
