What are the ingredients of a Eco-friendly lunch box
Posted by Admin
Eco-friendly lunch box generally refer to food containers made of degradable plastics, degradable pulp, and degradable small molecular materials. Currently, the most commonly used materials are: PLA (polylactic acid), plant fibers (wheat straw pulp, sugarcane pulp, bamboo pulp), corn starch base and other materials.
Degradable plastics are not completely degraded and still cause pollution. After the components of some degradable plastics degrade or are swallowed up by microorganisms, what is left is the "skeleton". Although these plastic residues do not exist in the form of large pieces like non-degradable plastics, they only exist in nature in small particles, which still have an impact on the environment and soil.
Main components and advantages of disposable biodegradable pulp molded lunch box:
(1) The raw materials are waste paper pulp or renewable straw fibers such as wheat, reed, straw, bamboo, sugar cane, palm, etc., which are widely sourced and inexpensive, and do not use wood at all.
(2) No waste water is produced in the production process, and there is no external discharge.
(3) The product is waterproof and oil-proof.
(4) During use, it can be frozen, refrigerated, microwaved, and baked at 220 degrees.
(5) The product can be completely degraded within 45-90 days in the natural state, and can be composted at home. After degradation, the main component is organic matter, which will not produce any garbage residue and pollution.
(6) As a packaging container, it has the characteristics of buffering, compression resistance and shock resistance, which can effectively protect the packaged products.
(7) Packing electronic products will not generate static electricity.
The ratio of raw materials required for different disposable lunch boxes is also different. Generally, manufacturers will issue product quality inspection reports.
