We’ve seen the rise in popularity of molded fiber bowls, also named compostable bowls or microwavable paper bowls as the days of polystyrene take-out food containers are rapidly disappearing. Compared with plastic cups, these bowls, made from natural pulp byproducts, can be composted instead of ending up in landfills or the ocean.


There are many sorts of take-out food containers sold on the markets, not only plastic bowls and microwavable paper bowls. We are going to list out their pros and cons for an entire understanding.


Compostable bowl/microwavable paper bowls


Most food packaging can be divided into three categories:


Plastic packaging. This includes a variety of plastic types, from polystyrene foam to transparent plastic "flip" packaging to the lid of a takeaway coffee cup. The raw materials used to make plastic packaging may be harmful to our health, or harmful chemicals may be added to the plastic to make it more functional.


Plastic packaging


Plastic packaging makes our life more convenient, but at what price? Its durability means it will never go away. It persists in our daily lives (including in our food packaging), leading to widespread contamination. So, when we finish processing plastics, where will they go? Some are recycled, some are incinerated, but most end up in landfills or into the environment as garbage.


Plastic packaging has brought a lot of convenience for our lives, but at what expense? Its durability means that it never disappears. Its constant presence in our daily lives (including in our food packaging) has led to widespread pollution. So where do plastics go when we’re done with them? Some are recycled, some are incinerated, but most end up in landfills or enter the environment as litter.


Most plastics can degrade. Some of them break down into ever smaller pieces called “microplastics” that are carried by the wind and water and deposited in the environment, spreading plastic pollution worldwide, from the top of the American Grand Canyon, to the stomachs of whales, to soil on the farms along with our corn and grain. Humans will ingest microplastic particles by the food including grain and vegetables grown on the land and animals fed by the farmers. And there are so much implication that we don’t know yet.


So plastic packaging is harmful to both our environment and our health, especially polystyrene. And its bad effects to human beings has been proved. US government agencies, such as the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), and the National Toxicology Program (NTP), recognize the health risks of styrene exposure, and confirmed that it will cause neurological disease and cancers, such as leukemia.



Please keep in mind that don’t heat food with a polystyrene plastic bowls as harmful chemicals substance can seep into food and liquids and get worse with time and gradually heater temperature.


Metal packaging


This includes aluminum cans and other metal cans used to pack food and beverages. Metal cans are usually lined with antiseptic substances, which can penetrate into our food and affect our health.


Metal packages used for long-term storage of food, such as cans, are susceptible to corrosion, especially from acidic foods, such as tomatoes. This vulnerability requires the addition of a plastic coating, usually epoxy resin containing bisphenol, most of which contain harmful chemicals, which we will discuss in detail below.


While metal cans are preferable to plastic because of their almost universal ability to be recycled, they are resource-intensive to produce. Much of the metal food packaging in use in the US is made from aluminum. Aluminum production is the result of mined bauxite that is smelted into alumina and, as with any industrial production, the purification of aluminum requires a lot of energy. In addition, aluminum production creates byproducts such as greenhouses gases, sulfur dioxide and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.


Paper/fiber packaging


This includes the increasingly common "four-corner" packaging cartons, other types of cartons and takeaway food containers. Like other types of packaging, paper/fiber packaging is usually lined or coated with something to make it more functional.


Molded fibre packaging-such as paper or cardboard-is commonly used in disposable food service items such as cups, plates, bowls and trays. As a packaging option, paper and paperboard have the advantage that they are cheap, they can be made from recyclable pulp (which makes them more sustainable) and they can be recycled.
