Environmental friendly food container and chopstick

What do you consider before you purchase a product? Normally, we will consider the price, usage, customer service...etc.

Nowadays, I prefer to buy environmental friendly or green product.

Today, I would like to show you something I always carry with me. It's my food container and chopstick which I bought from Tzu Chi (慈济) a year ago.

I like the design of both the food container and chopstick.

The white food container is simple and nice. It is made of polycarbonate which is also the material of baby feeding-bottle. I bring it with me most of the time. When I "da bao" (take away) food, I will use this rather than polystyrene container, which harm the planet and our own health. Some of the plastic food container is not easy to clean especially after filled with oily food. However, this is not a problem for me because this container is really easy to clean. I can even sterilize it in boiled water as it is heat-resistant (140C).

Besides the food container, I will also bring with me the reusable chopstick. It is always in my bag whenever I go. When I traveled to Taiwan, it was the best tool I used to try the various of instant noodle. The chopstick is consist of two part, the bottom part made of SPS and the handle part made of PC. If I am not convenient to wash it right after use, I will simply wipe it with tissue and put it back to the box. The cleaning job can be done after back to home.

Besides food utensil, there are many more environmental friendly or green product, like energy saving electronic items. Friend, do something for our planet and do something to take care of your health. : )

Please feel free to share with us your environmental friendly items so that we can exchange our idea.

May all beings be well and happy.

We mist take care of our Planet. With global warming, pollution and many others. We must take all efforts to take care of the environment through recycling, usage of green products etc.

Nowadays, people should bring their own reusable bag for shopping instead of using those plastic bags. :)

SuhChing said...

flsam: yes, we should bring our own reusable bag. Some hypermarket like Jusco started to sell their reusable bag too.

sweet jasmine: Well done! Let us keep it up :)

This is indeed a good practice, Suhching. Tzu Chi sells this? How's your work life?

SuhChing said...

Jo-N: Ya, Tzu Chi sell this. Not only the container and chopstick, they sell other food utensil as well. I enjoy my work life, got many chances to learn new knowledge. May you be well and happy :)
