Polystyrene

Polystyrene is type 6 of 7 types of plastic. The 7 types are 1 Polythylene Terephthalate PET or PETE. Type 2 High Density Polyethylene HDPE. 3 Polyvinyl Chloride PVC. 4 Low Density Polythylene LDPE . 5 Polypropylene PP. 6 Polystrene PS, and 7 Other.

Polystyrene is an inexpensive and hard plastic that is found all over the place. Things like hairdryers, TV's, and kitchen appliances all have polystyrene in them. Polstyrene is also used to make plastic drinking cups- hard plastic ones and soft foamy ones. A popular type of polystyrene foam is styrofoam.

Would you belive me if I said these three cups were made from the same material?Guess what? They are!

Polystyrene

I chose polystyrene becase it is my favorite type of plastic. It is my favorite because there are so many things made out of polystyrene and so many uses for polystyrene.

That is why I chose Polystyrene.
