Most home objects are composed of plastic, and when we use them to store hot foods, we ingest microplastic and the food, which can cause serious cancer in humans. Over 200 metric tonnes of plastic is thrown away from spoons, plates, and containers. So, to limit plastic usage, they created Caragreen, a company that makes cardboard boxes based on the philosophy “reuse, reduce, recycle.” This magical box may be transformed into a plate and spoon by cutting through the perforated dots on the box. A Food-grade board has used to construct the box. Their goal is to connect with every meal delivery service. They have five major clients, including Haldiram’s, Balaji Food, and three others. The selling price is Rs 15 while the cost price is roughly 11.5 rupees. Approximately 4 to 5 lakh spoons were sold in the previous month, resulting in a net profit of Rs 80000 to 90000 rupees. They had a box demo but hadn’t started selling those boxes yet. It is still in the testing stage.
