BYO Tupperware - Tapau this!

Ta Pau or Bungkus (both meaning 'take-away') is very much an Asian practice for breakfast, lunch, dinner or supper! It's the easy way to have a delicious and fast meal.

The plastic bag or styrofoam container is the normal way to pack even steaming-hot foods, but do you realise how these can endanger our health and the environment?

  • Styrofoam containers leach toxic chemicals into food (especially when heated in a microwave) that threaten our health and reproductive systems.
  • Styrene is classified as a possible human carcinogen (cancer-causing) by the EPA and by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).
  • Long-term exposure to styrene affects the skin, eyes, upper respiratory, gastrointestinal, and the central nervous system!
  • Styrofoam manufacturing is the 5th largest creator of hazardous waste.
  • Plastic bags in the ocean look like jellyfish - turtles and other sea animals eat it and die since they cannot digest the plastic bag.
  • Styrofoam bits, plastic bags, disposable bottles, etc., clog up our drains, causing floods.
  • When plastic breaks down, they release toxins polluting the water we drink and the air we breathe.
