With all due respect, I feel that the commenters have missed the point. She is asking GCPS about alternatives to dumping 30 MILLION styrofoam trays into landfills every year. As a matter of fact, Kevin and Boortzguy, she suggests "Reusable tableware is healthier for kids and better for the environment. If durable and washable dishware is not feasible, we recommend asking your supplier to offer an affordable, biodegradable or compostable alternative." Sounds like she might just be on the same page as you.
Perhaps you might consider reading the actual petition before jumping to conclusions. And I think it's perfectly reasonable to ask for some transparency from GCPS and ask where the $800,000 figure came from.
As another involved parent who volunteers with Beth at Camp Creek, I am grateful for her efforts. And I can assure you, Boortzguy, not ALL parents who signed the petition are "typical Obama voting Liberals." By your logic, one could argue that all "typical Boortz-listening Conservatives" have no regard for the environment or our childrens' well-being.
