What is disposable tableware
Introduction Disposable tableware is divided into the following three categories according to the raw material source, production process, degradation mode and recovery level:
1. Biodegradation: such as paper products (including pulp molding type, cardboard coating type), edible powder molding type , plant fiber molding, etc.;
2. Light / biodegradable materials: light / biodegradable plastic (non-foaming) type, such as photodegradable PP;
3. Easy to recycle materials: such as polypropylene ( PP), high impact polystyrene (HIPS), biaxially oriented polystyrene (BOPS), natural inorganic mineral-filled polypropylene composite products, and the like.
Identify the quality of the pros and cons
Plastic lunch box can be fake
Inferior disposable plastic lunch boxes can be bought for a few cents because of their low price, so they are welcomed by some small restaurants. For example, in the production of inferior lunch boxes, a large number of industrial grade calcium carbonate, talc, paraffin, and other toxic and harmful materials are added, which poses a direct threat to the health of users.
Counterfeit green plastic lunch box hand touch soft, rupture with a tear, smell pungent and blinking, hot deformation is easy to leak; counterfeit pulp box is poor in strength, deep in color, there is a serious oil seepage phenomenon; packing box There is no factory name, no trademark, no production date on the lunch box; the counterfeit lunch box is heavier than the qualified product, and it is easy to sink after being shredded and placed in water (the proportion of qualified products is less than 1, it will not sink); the price is cheap, generally Below 0.10 yuan, and the real environmentally friendly lunch box price is above 0.13 yuan.
Disposable chopsticks are too white to be vigilant
Many people think that disposable chopsticks are more hygienic and safe when eating out. But in order to reduce costs, some small workshops use inferior wood. In order to “whiten” chopsticks, some lawless elements will be fumigated with sulfur. When eating with this kind of chopsticks, the residual sulfur dioxide will enter the body.
How to prevent “poisoning”? After getting the disposable chopsticks, it depends on whether the name, trademark and contact information of the manufacturer are printed on the packaging; those disposable chopsticks with too white color are not credible; you can also smell the smell of chopsticks, if there is sour Sulfur flavor, it is best not to use. Do not immerse the chopsticks in hot soup or hot porridge for a long time while dining, as this will accelerate the decomposition of sulfur dioxide. The surface of the chopsticks can be washed with cold water to reduce residual sulfur dioxide.
Colored straws are not necessarily safe
When drinking a drink, be aware that many straws are made of waste plastic and are harmful to the liver and kidneys.
In order to cover up the variegated color of the straw made of waste plastic, some unscrupulous merchants will dye the straw, and the more vivid the color, the greater the safety hazard. Experts advise that color straws are best not to be used. Its raw materials do not rule out the possibility of recycling industrial plastics or even waste plastics. Identifying the problem pipette can follow three steps: first ask for information on the production bag, date of manufacture, shelf life, production license and number (QS mark). Then identify the color, try not to buy colorful, and pay special attention to the deep color. Finally, before the straw is in contact with the beverage, you should smell the odor of the pungent nose. If there is any odor, it is definitely a problem with the straw.
