The Eco-Products EP-SB48 compostable plastic salad bowl with lid stores and displays salads and other cold foods, is suitable for use in the refrigerator and deli case (but not microwave), has a clear plastic lid that seals to reduce leaks, and is made with clear PLA, which resists liquids and oils. PLA (polylactic acid) is made from corn, a renewable resource. This product meets the D6400 and D6868 standards of ASTM International, formerly known as the American Society for Testing and Materials, for being compostable in municipal and industrial composting facilities. The salad bowl has a capacity of 48 oz.
Disposable food service products are used to store, insulate, transport, prepare, and serve food and drink. They may be made of paper, plastics, or metal foil. Food service products for freezing items protect their contents from freezer burn, contamination, and drying. Microwavable food service products are safe for use to heat food in a microwave. Compostable food service products biodegrade about as fast as yard trimmings and food scraps, and disintegrate so that no large plastic fragments remain.
Eco-Products manufactures recycled and biodegradable food-service disposable products and janitorial supplies. The company, founded in 1990, is headquartered in Boulder, CO.
