I lose. Lunch came with a #6 clear plastic clear clamshell box. It was crowded and busy and I wasn't fast enough with a 'wrap that in paper, please!' request. This is the place downstairs and they were slammed-- the weather is nasty and no one wants to go outside.
I've been meaning to do some holiday cookie baking though, so the box could at least get some re-use.
PS- You know what? These things aren't cheap! The website where I found the picture above sells plastic take-out containers from 30 cents to a dollar A PIECE. And we use them for all of a few minutes before throwing them away. Wow. I wonder what the average New York take-out place spends per month on containers.
