    Any food storage container can be considered environmentally friendly as long as the use of plastic packaging or foil is reduced.paper lid wholesale Plastic packaging or foil tends to be discarded when all the food packaged in it is removed, which creates waste -- much of which does not degrade immediately -- and therefore remains a pollutant for a long time. Containers, on the other hand, can be washed and used repeatedly, and properly made containers can keep food fresh for as long as foil or wrapping lid wholesale There may be some downsides, you can't put these containers in the microwave unless they are specially designed, but this is a minor irritant, not as much waste as using foil and plastic packaging.
    However, the best food storage containers are still glass and stainless steel containers for truly green products, because they can be preserved for years, even from generation to generation, in addition to being made using energy and the earth's resources. Glass is usually microwaveable and easy to clean.wooden coffee stick wholesale It never gets soiled or retains an odor like some plastic containers. Glass containers do need to be handled with care because they are stir sticks wholesale Stainless steel has almost the same properties, except you can't put it in the microwave.
