3. Eating takeout
Yes, even the way we eat take out is wrong. Apparently, there’s a very specific reason why takeout boxes are shaped the way they are, and it’s meant to make our lives easier (or at least save us the time of washing dishes). We’ve never given too much thought to those Chinese food containers, but it turns out there was a lot of thought put into their design.
Those seemingly innocent boxes are meant to serve as plates – if you open the box all the way, it turns into a plate, to save you the trouble of washing the dishes. We all hate dishes duty, and this seems like the perfect solution. Using plastic plates isn’t much better, if we want to be environmental, and this isn’t a waste of plastic.
