San francisco, CA banned the usage of Styrofoam food containers previously, and it looks like the state of California may soon follow suit. The causes with this ban are many, nevertheless the basic problem is foam food containers do not biodegrade and will last indefinitely. No-one knows without a doubt if your city is next, but the one thing that’s certain is that each municipality is trying to find answers to trash, recycling and composting issues to try and mitigate and reduce our waste problem.
There are so many different forms of food storage containers that one can pick from. Just walk down the storage aisle of any grocery or convenience store and you’ll see shelves filled with containers. And everyone has had the annoying experience of buying food storage containers that do not work as well as the labels claimed–whether the food leaked out or whether it permanently stained the container in only one use.
