Change is possible!

I was delighted to learn that a petition started on may of helped to prompt United Airlines to stop using styrofoam coffee cups on flights.  The petitioner, Dominique Kalata, received the following response from United Airlines...

Dominique Kalata: United is stopping using styrofoam cups on flights, starting in March!
I got a tweet today from United saying:
"@dominiquekalata Hi, we've replaced our Styrofoam cups with an Eco-friendly alternative. Read more here: . "
The new cups, according to United, are made of 50% recycled materials and are fully recyclable.
Thank you everyone! We showed that when people come together we can made a difference and positively influence change. I'm sure all of us, working together, helped move things along at United.
