Who would make a food container that you can't recycle or compost? TetraBoxes – those metal-lined cardboard boxes that are mostly used for soy milk, soups, and drinks – are frustrating. You feel guilty whenever you use one and just toss it into the landfill. Malyasian designer Ed Chew agreed and looked into ways to reuse these containers.
