More information:

ECOBOX® Disposable Food bowl has been compared to an industry standard pressed aluminium disposable food bowl product which serves as the business as usual for the disposable food bowl product category. The life cycle inventory data compiled for the BAU product was obtained from industry.

The products have successfully passed the relevant GreenTag Standard's Cautionary Assessment Process. One remaining issue of concern is unknown impacts of visibly accumulating plastic litter as well as degraded microplastics in oceans and river systems.
