Fast food packaging can be divided into three aspects.
1. Packing bag
2. Beverage packaging
3. Food packaging.
For this three aspects, the common package is paper. Paper package is a recyclable resource, low price and easy to transport. However, some paper bags pressure with a plastic film for the food seep oil and if we use the paper package we have to felling the trees. The important thing is in the product process have a large amount of exhaust gas and waster water; it is really bad for the environment.
Packaging #1 (Font, Pollution, Environment,)
Packaging is bad for the environment because it’s not biodegradable and if it’s not then it will have to be burned which therefore causes co2, Causing greenhouse gasses that can cause global warming. And because we cut down trees and it seems like the more we recycle the more of an increase we get with one, there is actually just as much of a decrease with the other.
What is fast foods (what does it mean, sale and consumption)
Fast food is the term given to food that can be prepared and served very quickly, first popularized in the 1950s in the United States. While any meal with low preparation time can be considered to be fast food, typically the term refers to food sold in restaurant or store with preheated or precooked ingredients, and served to the customer in a packaged form for take-out/take-away. Fast food restaurants are traditionally separated by their ability to serve food via a drive-through. The term “fast food” was recognized in a dictionary by Merriam–Webster in 1951.
Between a quarter and a third of all domestic waste is packaging: much of this is food packaging. It’s difficult to recycle, too. Plastic, which is contaminated with food, is hard to reuse. Packaging and transport are the two biggest environmental problems with convenience drinks. The two are tied together, as heavier containers take more energy to transport, and even recycling and refilling demand transport for the empties.
Laws in different countries
United Kingdom households waste an estimated 6.7 million tonnes of food every year, around one third of the 21.7 million tonnes purchased. This means that approximately 32% of all food purchased per year is not eaten. Most of this (5.9 million tonnes or 88%) is currently collected by local authorities. Most of the food waste (4.1 million tonnes or 61%) is avoidable and could have been eaten had it been better managed.
