If only we could get them into the country without paying 30-50% duty (Chinese Styrofoam is just so cheap) Or buy some of Belize's sugarcane pulp - not sure how much is produced here anymore.

Best thing is to figure out a way to produce those items locally - couldn't be that hard - then export to Mexico and Guatemala (and the US). Helps with jobs and the environment.

These products are great - but this is a poor country - leaders unfortunately don't see environmental preservation as important as their own mighty dollar. The eco-friendly, expensive resorts can afford these things now, but it is important for the average takeout place to have a sane choice when it comes to choosing green products over crap. We need to subsidize the importation (and/or production) of green products.
