The mayor who proposed banning large sodas is looking to shake up things in the food industry.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg wants to abolish the use of Styrofoam cups and containers in city stores and restaurants.

Bloomberg says Styrofoam is an environmental nightmare because it doesn’t break down in a landfill.

Those opposed to the plan says it could ultimately hurt restaurants and small businesses.
