San Jose, CA – February 22, 2011 At The Takeout Store, disposable tableware products made from Bagasse and Corn Starch are leading the way in replacing wasteful Styrofoam and Plastic disposable tableware to reduce waste on America’s growing landfills.
Bagasse is a byproduct of the sugarcane refining process. It is what is left over after the sugarcane stalks are crushed to extract the juices. Since bagasse comes from the earth it is easily converted by nature into simple, stable compounds that are absorbed back into the ecosystem. One of the many attractive qualities of bagasse is that it is both biodegradable and compostable. Future generations will not be burdened by excessive waste from takeout materials that take thousands of years to break down.
Biodegradable means that the product will break down into water, carbon dioxide, and biomass in a short amount of time. When something is “compostable”, it means that it is made of organic matter that will break down in a compost system or land fill.
Bagasse biodegradable food containers are quickly being recognized as a great eco-friendly alternative to traditional Styrofoam clamshells and plastic plates.
The Takeout Store is proud to be a green promoter in providing biodegradable options and convenience to the local and national community. Supporting and sponsoring local charity events with biodegradable disposable tableware is a vital element of dedication towards keeping the community green.
“Our mission is to reduce environmental waste and promote sustainability while providing the highest quality biodegradable products available.” says company owner, Eddy Yee. “Striving to become a zero waste society is an important goal, and biodegradable disposable tableware products play an essential role.”
