Is there such a thing as a responsible and environmentally friendly take-out container?

I work at a restaurant in the city and much of our business is retail to-go. Personally, I've always hated plastic take-out containers. We use them and I'm looking for alternatives. We need something elegant yet cost-effective and portable. Reusable would be great but plastic is really getting lame. I'm tired of contributing to overconsumption of oil and petroleum based products and I would love suggestions on where and how to change this in our restaurant.
