Waste Not, Want Not. The Pizza Box

According to a blog from, “It’s sad but true that many Americans are oblivious to the sheer amount of garbage our daily eating habits produce. Take something as simple as a hamburger from McDonald’s. First there is the burger wrapper, then assuming the burger is carry-out, there is the paper bag. Inside the paper bag are several napkins and a ketchup packet or two.”

“A more glaring example is a pizza-box. Since they are big, encumbering and don’t break down easily, people tend to notice that they are wasteful. That’s why Eco Incorporated invented the first environmentally-friendly pizza-box called the GreenBox,” said the blog. “Not only is it made from 100 percent recycled cardboard, the GreenBox does double-duty as plates and a storage container.”
