What is the main concern about plastic containers with lids?
Most people think about the environmental impact of purchasing and using disposable products such as takeaway cups, food storage containers and food boxes. At Catering24 we strive to provide people with the most environmentally friendly catering disposables. A lot of the products we sell are recyclable or compostable. To help our customers and end users, we have created an eco property glossary and have label all of our products with an eco property so that our customers are able to make an informed choice when browsing the website for catering products such as plastic food storage containers. A link to our eco glossary can be found here. The other concern of these storage tubs is that they are not breathable and currently do not contain a breathing hole, but this is a great option for those food storage containers that have a sealing requirement.
