\"Cartons are more eco-friendly --
Friendly, we can paste our logo and stickers on it to make the package look more attractive.

Jin Joon Chong, a 55-year-old Internet cafe owner, banned the use of polystyrene containers, saying they were also harmful to health.
\"We have read many scientific reports on the health hazards of polystyrene, especially when it comes to hot food.
