I was sitting by the coffee shop, taking my late lunch. Then I saw 2 ladies carrying her own box of paper containers to buy some Nyonya Kuih. I was wondering, since when Miri people has start to practice to use own container rather than wasting plastic bags or the hazardous polystyrene food packing?
We all know that polystyrene or styrofoam is really bad for the whole environment, harmful for you and me. But did you really start prevent using them?
As a consumer, we only want conveniences. If you ask me to bring a container to buy some food, I might end up not buying the food but to eat there instead. Somehow, in certain situation you still need to take away or tapao the food.
Great thing that I found out from my take away chicken rice , they use the paper container. This is more environmental friendly. I like it. I’m not too sure about the cost of this packing but one thing for sure, it’s better than Styrofoam. Right?
Somehow, this could only use to put some dry food. Imagine you put some food that consist of gravy or soupy type, I don’t think the paper container can support.
=) I’m happy with this kind of new invention. Hoping that there will be more eatery place start using this kind of packaging.
