No one can afford to live or operate a business in Massachusetts, its just too expensive.

They are still in Massachusetts. They bought Sweetheart Cup years ago so unless that's what you googled you won't find them. They do still have 2 plants in Mass as Solo Cup...Andover and Springfield as the story says. Also they buy their supplies from local vendors here in Mass ...raw plastic materials etc and they outsource some of their molding to local companies in Massachusetts as most companies in the plastic industries often will...so Zimmer you look a little foolish for your boycott. But I don't think they'll miss your 2 dollars a month anyways.

There is currently only (1) Solo Cup in MASS. The Springfield location is out in the mid west. Reason for me knowing this information is that I once worked for Solo in Leominster. The company got in over there heads when they purchased Sweetheart Cup, and only made matters worse for the Northeast plants.
