Bowls and Lids

  • Category Summary

    Welcome to our Bowls and Lids product category!

    Disposable bowls and lids are a convenient and cost-effective solution for serving food in a variety of settings, including catering events, food trucks, takeout operations, and more. These products are designed to be used once and then discarded, making them a hygienic and hassle-free option for serving food to large groups of people.

    One of the key benefits of disposable bowls and lids is their convenience. They eliminate the need for washing and sanitizing dishes, saving time and effort for busy food service professionals. They also reduce the risk of cross-contamination, as they can be easily discarded after each use.

    There are several popular materials used in the manufacture of disposable bowls and lids, including plastic, foam, and paper. Each of these materials has its own unique set of features and benefits.

    Plastic disposable bowls and lids are strong, durable, and leak-proof, making them ideal for use with heavy or messy foods. They are also easy to stack and transport, making them a popular choice for catering events. Compostable clear disposable bowls and lids are made from renewable materials that can break down naturally and return to the soil. They are a more sustainable alternative to plastic clear disposable bowls and lids, and can help to reduce the environmental impact of food service.

    Paper disposable bowls and lids are a more eco-friendly option, as they are made from a renewable resource and can be recycled or composted after use. They are also a cost-effective choice for serving food, as they are generally less expensive than other materials.

    Overall, disposable bowls and lids are a convenient and cost-effective choice for serving food in a variety of settings. They are available in a range of materials, each with its own set of features and benefits, and can be recycled or composted after use.

  • Are fiber bowls better than conventional food bowls for take-out?

    Fiber bowls and lids are better than conventional food bowls when it comes to sustainability. Instead of using single-use plastics, Eco-pliant supplies fiber bowls and disposable food bowls that are environmentally friendly. We use recyclable plastics and compostable materials for all of our food bowls. Our eco-friendly food bowls provide the same level of quality and sturdiness without harmful materials, all at competitive costs.
     

  • Are food bowls and lids recyclable?

    All of our products are eco-friendly, meaning they are either recyclable or compostable. Our food bowls and lids are made from a variety of plastics, fibers, and plant-based products. To discover which of these materials is recyclable instead of compostable, please read the product description under each item. Look for the “key features” highlights to determine the recyclable properties of the product before purchasing.
     

  • Are the bowls and lids compostable?

    Yes, most of our fiber bowls and lids are compostable. All of our products are made from environmentally friendly materials that are either recyclable or compostable, so all materials are sustainable and eco-friendly. Look for the “key features” section under each product to see if it is listed as being a compostable item.
     

  • What are the bowls and lids made out of?

    Our bowls and lids are available in PET, PLA, and fiber options. The PET bowls and lids are made from durable, high-quality materials, while the PLA bowls and lids are made from biodegradable plastic. PLA bowls and lids are made from a material called Polylactic Acid. Although it is a complex bio-polymer, simply put, PLA is derived from corn. This is what gives PLA its bio-based nature. Manufacturers run natural molecules from corn through a process that creates a fully compostable, and very functional bio-plastic. The fiber bowls and lids are made from various natural fibers including sugarcane bagasse, wheatgrass, bamboo, and silver grass. Usually, the fibers are diverted from other industries' manufacturing processes to the packaging factory. This is where the fibers are cleaned, processed, and given new life as food packaging! Please make sure you check the “Key Features” tab to make sure you are purchasing the right bowls and lids for your use-case.

  • Are disposable bowls and lids safe to use for food?

    Yes, all of our disposable bowls and lids are safe for food at Eco-pliant. All of our materials are food-grade and food-safe, so they are safe for any dishes you wish to store or package.
     

  • Can your disposable bowls and lids be used for hot and cold foods?

    Yes, our disposable bowls and lids are suitable for both hot and cold foods. They are designed to be sturdy and leak-proof, so they can be used for a variety of foods and beverages.

  • Can disposable bowls and lids be used in the microwave?

    It depends on the material. Plastic disposable bowls and lids should not be used in the microwave, as they can melt or release harmful chemicals. Fiber disposable bowls and lids may be safe to use in the microwave, but it is best to check the manufacturer’s guidelines to be sure.

  • Are the bowls and lids freezer safe?

    The fiber and PET bowls and lids are safe for use in the freezer. These materials are known for their stability and durability in low temperatures, making them ideal for food packaging that may be stored in the freezer. PLA lids do not perform well in the freezer. Customers have reported PLA lids getting brittle and cracking when exposed to freezing temperatures. It is recommended to put containers with PLA lids in the refrigerator instead of the freezer.

  • How long will food last in the fiber bowls?

    This varies depending on climate, atmosphere, type of food, and more. The biggest factor is temperature. If the food is piping hot, the fiber bowl will start its biodegradation process right away and wilt after a few hours. For slightly warm or room temp foods, the bowl will hold for up to a week, even longer in some cases.
