ST. LOUIS, MO — People who litter are ignorant of how they're destroying the planet. Styrofoam takes more than a million years for it to break down in the environment. These "blockheads" are doing something about it. They are a group of Lindbergh High School students who are turning used styrofoam into glue.

It began as a Girl Scout project featured at the White House Science Fair in 2016 and in two documentaries. It has turned into an environmentally conscious recycling solution.
