Green Box : Takeaway Box With Integrated Eating Utensils

Green Box is constructed out of biodegradable material to avoid the use of plastics in the take-away food industry. It integrates an eco-friendly takeaway box with eating utensils where you can easily punched it out (indicated by groove lines). It will drastically reduce the need for plastic utensils, therefore, reducing plastic waste in our environment. Green Box is made with PLA (polylactide) - a biodegradable thermoplastic derived from sources such as cornstarch or sugar cane. For additional strength and better grip, the utensils have been designed with slightly thicker at the rear. You can enjoy your meal without harming your environment. Designer : Pai Chang-Hsuan
