A few of my favorite eating establishments still use styrofoam take-out boxes, and even the recycled cardboard/paper ones end up in the landfill.

Pupperware would be a line of durable, plastic, dishwasher-safe versions of common take-out container varieties. The initial set would include clamshell, clamshell-with-division-for-gooey-stuff, chinese-take-out-box, bag, and cup.

       [nick], would you really use these? You'd have to carry them into the restaurant. Cool idea name, though.

       What's keeping you from bringing a tupperware container with you? Or do you suppose that giving away a more substantial container would somehow solve the waste issue?

       will the containers be shaped like small dogs?   

       could the containers be food specific shapes? if you were eating chicken its shaped like a chicked, if you were eating snake it could be shaped like a snake and so on......   

       why should they be made of plastic? and not glass or leather. You could bring home your leftover hamburger in a leather satchel shaped like a cow!   

       I would love to store leftover bacon or a spiral ham in a pig shaped container kind of like an Egyptian sarcophagus. When did we lose that I want my coffin to be shaped like me.
