Another great reason to eat at Cappy's Pizza!

I'm not sure what I expect of most of the places that I get take out food. I would love that they all convert to some sort of re-usable container or that they ask me what container I am bringing for my food. I do sympathize that it is often expensive and difficult to change. I live in Tampa. I would love to think that people care about this kind of stuff, but some do and some don't. Anyway, there was a point to today's ramble and it concerns our neighborhood Cappy's Pizza on Florida Ave. Our first location was next door to Cappy's and we grew to love Scooter and the staff there as well as the awesome pizza. It didn't hurt that they were next door, but trust me they have the best pizza and beer selection in the Heights. Last night though, I unloaded my sack of takeout food to find an amazing development. My styrofoam standby was replaced with something that felt a lot like cardboard! On closer inspection, I found it was named "Eco-Tainer" and attested to be made from sugar cane. Sugar cane or actually the left over parts of it are waste materials from the harvest that have recently been introduced as a compostable foam alternative. Coincidentally, I had been looking at this material the week before for an alternative to styrofoam coffee cups. Thanks Cappy's, I hope this will inspire the rest of our neighbors! Now if I could only get Nicko's to use them...
