There are more than 11 million fastfood junkies in Taiwan. The consumption amount of disposable tableware is around 60K tons per year. Not only causing a heavy burden for our environment, but also seriously affecting our health.
Apart from encouraging using repetitive utilization tableware, tableware made of eco-friendly material can effectively reduce the usage of plastic.
Replacing plastic tableware with one made of bioplastic material with 50% of bamboo will reduce around 30K tons of plastic consumption per year. It’s equivalent to one-third output of whole bamboo forest of Fu-Xing district of Tao-Yuan city.
