Why Use Biodegradable Containers?
Plastic disposable containers used to serve foods and drinks pose a big environment problem. These products cannot be composted and are difficult to recycle. This has given rise to the demand for biodegradable containers. These containers are made from paper and other biodegradable materials. The containers are compostable, recyclable and biodegradable. Made with plant fibers of bamboo, sugarcane and other plants, the containers start rotting and become a part of the soil after being dumped in the landfills.
Being biodegradable does not mean these containers lack functional and aesthetic advantages that plastic containers offer. The biodegradable cups and plates are quite strong and easy to hold. They offer protection from hot and cold liquids. Containers in this range are available in various sizes to serve different amounts of foods and drinks. More and more businesses operating in the food service industry now use such environment friendly containers to reduce their carbon footprint.
