Zao Asian Café's Eco Bowl Can Be Used for Dining in or Takeout

Eco-Products developed an innovative, double-duty eco bowl for Salt Lake City, Utah's Zao Asian Café, which serves a variety of Asian-inspired soups, salads, sandwiches, bowls and tacos.

The versatile bowl boasts a design that may be used for both dining in and takeout, with a form that's created from 100% renewable sugarcane fiber. The compostable bowl design comes with a clear, custom-designed snap-on heat-resistant lid made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic that's adorned with the logo for the Asian cafe eatery.

As much as plastic is one of the most-used packaging materials in the world, issues around sustainability are deterring many conscious consumers from supporting plastic-packaged products. A number of brands are responding by introducing packages made from plant-derived alternatives that also boast compostable or biodegradable properties.
