Semi Edible Meal Box / Disposable tableware

Semi Edible Meal Box

With the increasing popularity of takeout, the classification of takeout boxes has become a problem. Although the take away lunch box is made of recyclable plastic, it is not recyclable because it has leftovers and oil stains, and the cost of recycling is too high. How can we solve the problem of taking out lunch box recycling? Here is my solution. A plastic lunch box connected at both ends, consisting of an edible bread like material with a lid and bottom. The edible lid and bottom are fixed and sealed by bending the plastic lunch box. By pressing, you can get a simple hamburger, reduce waste, and it's also convenient for garbage sorting.
