Then I discovered these at World Market, my most favourite store:
To the untrained eye these look like a 1950s vintage throw-back of the plastic Tupperware containers that my Nana might have used back in the day. But, oh, they are so much more.
These my friends, are not made of plastic. Nope, no plastic to be found on these cute little Tupperware containers that are covered in carrots, corn, and beets (I really couldn't resist. Can you tell? ...because I bought two sets..)
They are made completely of bamboo fibers!!!
Which is a superbly splendid discovery because I really wanted them and I absolutely hate plastic, but, bamboo? Yes, please!
It's environmentally sustainable and an excellent replacement for all things BPA-laden and yuckishly plastic.
