Disposable, environmentally friendly tableware has been divided into three categories: the source of raw materials, production processes, degradation methods, and recycling levels.

3.Easy to recycle materials category: such as polypropylene type (PP), high impact polystyrene type (HIPS), biaxially oriented polystyrene (BOPS), natural inorganic mineral-filled polypropylene composite products, etc.
Whether the environmental tableware is degradable
The answer is "NO."
Environmental tableware, including easy to recycle, easy to dispose of, and easy to degrade three types, degradable is only one of them.
Degradation is only a supplement to recycling. When a particular packaging material is challenging to recycle after use or has low recycling value, you can consider using degradable packaging.
Whether degradable tableware does not need to be recycled
The answer is "NO."
First of all, we should not throw away any garbage indiscriminately. We should take the initiative to do an excellent job of waste separation and recycling to reduce resource waste and environmental pollution. Even biodegradable products also need to be appropriate disposal of or used, leaving the specific environmental factors to talk about product degradation fast and slow degradation products is nonsense.
