Sometimes only give you a choice of plastic or other plastic. Try to learn a little bit about the restaurant you’re going to beforehand. Maybe you can bring your own bowl and have them put your food in it, instead of wasting a plastic one? Or you can ask for a paper or compostable bowl or cup, instead of their usual plastic containers. A lot of places actually have reusable containers for your meals but they choose to automatically place your food in a plastic box – check and make sure to ask!
