Any grease stains on a cardboard pizza box make it impossible to recycle, so do this to make your takeout eco-friendly: Ask for a sheet of aluminum foil. Have the pizza shop put the sheet of foil in the bottom of the box and lay the pizza on top of it. This does two things: It helps keep the pizza hotter for longer, and it prevents grease from leaking into the bottom of the box. A clean pizza box is a recyclable one! And don’t forget: Clean aluminum foil is also recyclable in your curbside recycling bin.
