Dubbed the ideal biodegradable food containers in Malaysia, this religious festival affirms the statement.
Green Eco Paradise is a disposable packaging company founded in 2013, making it one of the pioneers to provide biodegradable containers in Malaysia. As such, we have always projected the importance of reducing plastic across the Food and Beverage industry. Our growth as a brand of choice is largely signified by big celebrations such as Hari Raya, Deepavali and Thaipusam.
Thaipusam is a religious festival that comes from the combination of two words – “Thai” name of the month and “Pusam” the name of a star. It marks the occasion when Goddess Parvati granted Lord Murugan a divine spear named Vel to defeat a demon. Therefore, in such a festival brimming with positivity and spirituality, every other aspect follows suit. Since 2013, our biodegradable plates and lunch boxes are a firm favourite for the celebration. Here is why.
Strong, Plastic Free Disposable Plates and Lunch Box
Since not many packaging brands have done consistent product tests as much as Green Eco Paradise, with proper quality checks, the containers quickly became a top choice. Over the years, the plates and lunch box remain the top choice for Thaipusam. Firstly, the firm structure ensures the containers do not deform. Next, the zero presence of plastic in the food box. Some tend to give second looks and even run their hand over the surface of the plates, acknowledging the strength of the products.
As per the video above, assorted hot food and heavy dishes such as rice with gravy are conveniently packed. In terms of disposable plates, it’s effortless to carry with a single hand. Something which is unlikely with flimsy plates out there. What initially began as eco-conscious individuals encouraging eco boxes, soon everyone accepted with open arms.
Did you know that a study from Harvard reveals that serving hot food in plastic containers does release unhealthy chemicals?
Increase in the Speed of Food Packaging
This biodegradable packaging’s success is not only limited to satisfactory quality but also quick packing. This is an important measure as festivals like Thaipusam draw a huge crowd. Watching the video above, one could see the convenience of packing nasi lemak in 11 seconds. The food box is made from paddy straw, resulting in a thick surface that doesn’t stick to one another. Even if you are ignoring that plastic is harmful to the environment, you don’t want any delay during packing. Not forgetting the clamshell locking which is way more convenient than snapping plastic ends.
Change from the People to use Eco Friendly Products
Regardless of the fuss about plastic being cheaper, it hits back with a significant cost. With more awareness from bodies like the Consumer’s Associations of Penang, it is a step towards the right direction. Joining hands with Malaysia Hindu Sangam Bukit Bendera, they encourage temples to not use polystyrene food containers and single-use plastics. Many consumers were satisfied with our using the eco friendly dinnerware for Chitra Pournami too, watch the video here. Furthermore, many individuals are happy to use eco disposable plates for their homes. Click here to read the reviews.
A detailed, 12-page report by WWF previously revealed that Malaysia is among the biggest consumers of plastic packaging in Asia. The report states that due to the rapid economic growth, there is a huge increase in the consumption of plastic. The country is doing poorly at the disposable waste rate too. As such many restaurants are opting for wooden cutlery and paper straws too.
Biodegradable Food Containers Malaysia
Product quality and customer reviews are the best merits of any product. Last but not least, products are locally made. Imparting a cohesive message of supporting local products, also underlines that there is a low carbon footprint. The eco plates and lunch box are made from paddy straw, a raw material from Northern Malaysia.
We hope this article gives you a window into our disposable food packaging. Most importantly, why do our eco plates and lunch boxes once again remain customer favourites? Ticking three main criteria – product quality, excellent reviews and eco-friendliness – these containers are ideal for all festivals.
Thank you for the overwhelming support during Thaipusam 2023.
