Due to living a fast-paced life, the demand for take-out is increasing. Simultaneously, news is always reported on the environmental pollution of plastic products. So, paper containers seem to be the first choice to use by providing convenience and eco-friendly.
In the aspect of manufacturing, the main body of paper containers are paper which needs producing by logging, transporting, bleaching etc. And the carbon emission of paper containers is actually no less than plastic containers. In order to contain food, the surface of the paper containers needs to be attached with a layer of oil-resistant, water-resistant, and heat-resistant film which is plastic. Consequently, the paper containers with plastic film are not easy to recycle and dispose. Even if the paper containers are recycled, most of them are still processed together with general garbage in incinerators or landfills.
Therefore, the plastic containers that is easy to sort and recycle may be more eco-friendly in theory. This is exactly what Yaopack emphasizes to make the environment better by using recycled plastic material in standards compliant, cooperating with good recycling companies, using plastic containers properly.
