We all know by now how bad for the environment Styrofoam is, yet it’s still used by millions every day, often because there is little alternative.
But there is now and an environmentally-friendly version too. Called AreoClay and developed at Cleveland’s Case Western Reserve University, it’s roughly 95 to 99 percent air by volume and made from a blend of clay and polymer.
And as well as being able to be made into Styrofoam-like cups, it can also be used for insulation and packaging.
