Paper lunch boxes are the most vital green tableware in the 21st century:
Since its inception, paper tableware has been widely promoted and used in developed countries and regions such as Europe, America, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, and Hong Kong. Paper products are unique in appearance, environmental protection and hygiene, oil and temperature resistance, etc., and are non-toxic and tasteless, with good image, good feeling, degradable and non-polluting. As soon as paper tableware entered the market, it was quickly accepted by people with its unique charm. International fast food and beverage suppliers such as McDonald's, KFC, Coca-Cola, Pepsi and various instant noodle manufacturers all use paper tableware.
The plastic products that appeared 20 years ago and were known as the "white revolution" brought convenience to human beings, but also produced "white pollution" that is difficult to eliminate today. Because plastic tableware is difficult to recycle, incineration produces harmful gas, and it cannot be degraded naturally, and burying will damage the soil structure. Our government spends hundreds of millions of dollars every year to deal with it with little success. The development of green products and the elimination of white pollution has become a major global social issue.
At present, from an international point of view, many countries in Europe and the United States have already legislated to prohibit the use of plastic tableware. From the domestic situation, the Ministry of Railways, the Ministry of Communications, the State Environmental Protection Administration, the State Planning Commission, the Ministry of Science and Technology, and local governments such as Wuhan, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Dalian, Xiamen, Guangzhou and many other big cities have taken the lead in promulgating decrees to completely prohibit the use of disposable For plastic tableware, the No. 6 document of the State Economic and Trade Commission (1999) also clearly stipulates that at the end of 2000, the use of plastic tableware will be banned nationwide. A global change in the plastic tableware manufacturing industry is gradually emerging. The green environmental protection product of "replacing plastic with paper" has become one of the current social development trends.
In order to adapt to and promote the development of "replacing plastic with paper", on December 28, 1999, the State Economic and Trade Commission, the State Bureau of Quality and Technical Supervision, the Ministry of Science and Technology and the Ministry of Health issued the "General Technical Standards for Disposable Degradable Tableware" and The two national standards "Test Methods for Disposable Degradability" have been implemented since January 1, 2000. It provides a unified technical basis for the production, sales, use and supervision of disposable degradable tableware in my country.

At present, disposable paper cups have become a necessity for people's daily consumption in many economically developed areas. Experts predict that in the past three years, paper cups Quality tableware will quickly swept the country and enter the family in large numbers, and its market is growing and expanding rapidly. It is the general trend that plastic tableware will end its historical mission, and paper tableware is becoming a fashion trend.
