The American Chemistry Council announced the launch of a new coalition website to raise awareness about the possible negative impacts of the proposed ban on polystyrene foam in New York City.

The website, www.putalidonitnyc.com, will provide access to news updates, recent announcements, research reports, information about communities that are recycling polystyrene foam food service, and contact information for City Council representatives, the report said.

In his State of the City address, Mayor Michael Bloomberg called for a ban on polystyrene foam in the city.

"This website will be a resource for people who want the facts on how a ban on polystyrene foam food service will negatively impact businesses, consumers and taxpayers in New York City and to share their concerns with others," said Keith Christman, ACC's managing director of plastic markets, in a statement. "As we continue to encourage the city to instead explore opportunities to recycle foam in the city, this website will be a helpful resource for all who are interested to find out more information and stay up-to-date with relevant announcements."
