Why we love them
These clamshell (hinged) boxes are made from bagasse which is a material that comes from waste generated by the sugar cane industry, so it's natural and has all the good bits of foam containers without any of the nasty long term environmental damage.
Bagasse is a material from sugar farming waste and is an eco-friendly alternative to polystyrene as this natural material has great thermal properties but doesn't trap condensation like plastic, so food stays hot and crispy.
They are also the only current compostable material that is Freezer, oven and microwave safe.
