Disposable tableware is divided into the following three categories according to the source of raw materials, production process, degradation method and recycling level:
1. Biodegradation: such as paper products (including pulp molding type, cardboard coating type), edible powder molding type, plant fiber molding type, etc .;
2. Photo / biodegradable materials: photo / biodegradable plastic (non-foaming) type, such as photobiodegradable PP;
3. Easy to recycle materials: such as polypropylene (PP), high impact polystyrene (HIPS), biaxially stretched polystyrene (BOPS), natural inorganic mineral filled polypropylene composite products, etc.
Are environmentally friendly tableware degradable tableware?
No, environmentally friendly tableware includes three types: easy to recycle, easy to dispose, and easy to digest (degrade). Degradable is just one of them. Degradation is only a supplement to recycling, that is, when a certain packaging material is difficult to recycle or the recycling value is low, the use of degradation packaging can be considered.
Does the degradation tableware need to be recycled?
No, any materials should not be randomly discarded. They should be proactively sorted and recycled to reduce waste of resources and environmental pollution. Even degradable products need to be reasonably disposed of or used. It is nonsense to talk about the speed of product degradation and the degradation products without specific environmental factors.

So why do people use pulp tableware? The reason is summarized in eight words: environmental protection, health, fashion, value.
Environmental protection: Because the raw materials of pulp tableware are renewable, non-polluting raw materials in nature, such products are highly degradable, and their decomposition products will not cause damage to the environment.
Health aspects: We all know that the current disposable plastic tableware itself has problems. It is made by heating polystyrene polymer materials extracted from petroleum and adding foaming agents. When heated, it will produce toxic and harmful gases and carcinogens. It is easy to cause human disease, but the pulp tableware is different. It is made of natural raw materials without any additives. The product contains natural plant aroma.
Fashion: Pulp tableware is roughly divided into two colors according to different raw materials: brown and white. The brown appearance is stylish and generous, and the white is pure and pollution-free. And there are many product styles that can meet the needs of daily life.
In terms of value: Pulp tableware follows the high-end line and follows the fashion trend.
