Thanks for coming to look at our website.
Quite a few commenters have posted on the environmental problems with styrofoam.
Our group has discussed this, but we began to knit the ornaments right after we started the group and didn't give ourselves any time to figure out possible problems before we started.
We can't make them without any styrofoam as some of the balls were already purchased and used. However, we are using several options for any new balls we make:
- ornaments that don't need any stuffing
- recycled plastic bags to stuff
- a recycled plastic bag filled with reused packing paper
- reusing styrofoam balls leftover from a school
