Types of environmentally friendly tableware
Disposable tableware is divided into three categories according to the source of raw materials, production technology, degradation method, and recycling level:
1. Biodegradable products: such as paper products (including pulp molding type, cardboard coating type), edible powder molding type, plant fiber molding type, etc.;
2. Light/biodegradable materials: light/biodegradable plastic (non-foaming) type, such as photobiodegradable;
3. Materials that are easy to recycle: such as polypropylene (PP), high impact polystyrene (HIPS), biaxially oriented polystyrene (BOPS), natural inorganic mineral filled polypropylene composite products, etc.
Environmentally friendly tableware
includes three types: easy to recycle, easy to dispose and easy to absorb (degradable), degradable is just one of them. Degradation is only a supplement to recycling, that is, degradable packaging can be considered when a certain packaging material is difficult to recycle or has low recycling value after use.
No materials should be thrown away randomly, and sorting and recycling should be actively carried out to reduce waste of resources and environmental pollution. Even degradable products require reasonable disposal or utilization.
