Sustainable Takeout Food Containers

That Save You Money!

Foodware regulations are popping up in communities and cities everywhere with many banEmerald Eco-Friendly Takeout Food Containersning the use of single-use plastic and Styrofoam (polystyrene) food packaging such as the hinged "clamshell" takeout container.  Used by restaurants and foodservice operations for so many years, these food containers have demonstrated significant negative impacts on our planet. In addition, its composition includes a known carcinogen chemical called styrene, which has the potential to migrate into foods and the environment.

Expanded polystyrene is also difficult to recycle due to its high volume and low weight which unfortunately escapes waste management and ends up as litter.

When it comes to selecting take-out food containers, many food service establishments struggle to find that right balance between cost, performance and environmental impact, especially during times of high inflation, high fuel costs and upticks in take-out service.

Expanded polystyrene containers are eventually buried in landfill where it can take 1000+ years to decompose.   With over 28 million tons of petroleum-based plastic being disposed in U.S. landfill each year,  the  DEC encourages the use of reusable, recyclable, compostable, source reduction and items made using recycled content where possible as a way to reduce carbon footprint, landfill and micro plastics that leach harmful BPA’s.
