One of the things I hate most about ordering chinese food is the plethora of plastic utensils, napkins and soy sauce and mustard packs they give you. What do I need with eight knives, five forks and one spoon? It is as if I’ve ordered for a family of ten.
It is not so much that the waste bothers me, but plastic knives and forks are worthless and ineffective. I’m at home, I have plenty of utensils.
Well, I made my first online order through GubHub.com today and to my surprise there was an option to request that no plasticware be added to my order.
