Name the last time you used a reusable food container or food carrier for yourself. Can’t remember? We can’t either. The coronavirus outbreak has gotten us in the groove of a new reality we weren’t quite familiar with.
Remembering to wear a mask before heading out. Standing a metre away from others in public. Washing our hands immediately after we get home are all new practices we’ve never had to do.
We’re also encouraged to bring reusable food containers out when we take away food from the food stalls and restaurants. This is to make takeaways more sustainable as the demand for disposable food packaging skyrocketed.
It’s also more reassuring to know you are packing food in containers you’ve washed well. And doing so also helps you reduce your plastic footprint. (It doesn’t get any timelier with Earth Day on April 22.)
Ahead, we have amassed the best reusable food containers to use. You’ll find insulated options to keep your food warm (or cold), to layered tingkat-style ones and bento boxes.
