I wasn't surprised that the Chinese takeout container was invented in the US, I was surprised that it wasn't specifically invented for Chinese food though.
Jeffrey Twoey
And American people are overweight...they're too lazy to cook or get up and go get food. Takeout should be banned because of the trash and overweight people.
Keidyx
This is why I use paper straws or metal straws.
Crymaxx
"From Starbucks to Seattle" When you realize that Starbucks was created in Seattle and she basically said Seattle is banning straws...
Max Ant
I learned nothing about takeout in America.

CNBC should first rename the video to "why we shouldn't use plastic disposable containers" and two the data doesn't support the whole save the environment! To begin with those plastic shopping bags cost 7200x less energy to make 1 plastic bag compared to cotton or 4800x to a paper bag turns out when you need electricity to make your product which uses coal/natural gas your destorying the enviroment more CO2 wise and if your using paper bags or cardboard then it mean destorying trees. Another thing I don't see being pointed out is how this isn't a U.S.A. problem when it comes to environmental trash in the oceans we output less trash in the ocean than the next 8 countries combined which pollute the ocean on a much larger percentage these countries are China, India, Vietnam, South Korea, Indonesia, Thailand, Philipphines, Japan, Did you also see the pattern? They are all Asia countries and account for 80% of trash output in our Oceans each year this isn't a USA it's a Asia problem we Americans are responsible for our trash and recycle or bury it while Asia consumes and dumps to bad we have alot of people who just see USA as the big bad wolf in the world and not open their eyes to see the bigger picture.

The Brits added a 5 pence fee for plastic bags... what about us Canadians, we also did the same.

Make all food containers out of cookies. Problem solved.
Danny Wahyu
So basically Americans produce a lot of trash and blame it to Asian countries
Annie Fung

Take out because the transport price to go to the shop and eat is too expensive
mkgta
This is really bad. I'm a corporate. N big one
vanillacokejunky
I had to rewatch this video a few times. The title is misleading, as the video is more about takeout "packaging". Good history lesson here though about Chinese and Pizza. What's going on in the final clip at the end? If there is "edible packaging" I'm sure people would want to know more about it. Surprised you threw that in there without any explanation or further discussion about the future of packaging and edible materials.
Vishal Arora
CNBC india should also do these research and videos for india as well
Alejandro Z
What song did they use
Riki Rikin kanayin
May be this is why you have so much diabetes hypertension cancer obesity problems with joints breathing and cholesterol.

Aside from pizza, I prefer to whenever eating out to actually eat at the restaurant itself, but they still use disposables a lot instead of a dishwasher and actual utensils and plates.

The battery industry is rapidly changing, in part because of growth in mobile devices and electric cars. The lithium-ion battery industry alone is expected to grow to $93 billion by 2025. But the energy sector could be disrupted by battery innovation as well. Here's everything you need to know about the big business of batteries and how battery innovation is changing our world.

**CORRECTION** @5:04 in the story, the lower third reads Gaston Plante. The correct name is John Goodenough, who is the co-inventory of the lithium-ion battery.
