Northfield area restaurants: time to quit the polystyrene foam take-out containers?

polystyrene foam take-out containerRobbie and I seem to be ordering take-out more often during this recession. And when we do eat out, we end up taking home the leftovers (AKA doggie bag) more often.

More often than not, the contents are put into a foam take-out containers which are made out of polystyrene foam and do not biodegrade.

Might it be time for Northfield area restaurants to shift to bioplastic takeout boxes, like these?

  1. If any of you have eaten at the Angry Trout in Grand Marais, and have taken anything with you, you probably remember the wax paper bags used, or the plastic container with a lid. They collect a deposit for the container and you get it back when you return the container. They actually have really good food there, also. Much of their food is grown in the Grand Marais area.
