Plant-based disposable tableware, particularly for parties, but can be used anytime. Lots of colors and materials to choose from, including these wooden forks and spoons hand-painted with nontoxic inks. Read material descriptions carefully as the criteria for this website is “eco” rather than nontoxic. There are a lot of nontoxic products here that would make your party fun, just choose carefully.
A towel made from certified organic bamboo that you use like a paper towel, but can be washed and re-used more than 100 times. It is stonger, more absorbent, more durable and cleans better than any paper towel, but looks and feels like a paper towel—they even come on a roll that you can put in your paper towel holder. The bamboo is grown and harvested using sustainable practice. By nature, once harvested bamboo regrows new sprouts every year. Trees grown to make paper towels do not regrow once harvested. 1 roll of Bambooee can replace up to 500 rolls of paper towels.
Cling wrap made from “renewable raw materials of agricultural origin and from non-GMO starch.” As far as I can tell, it’s corn starch, so if you are allergic to corn, don’t use this, but otherwise, it’s a lot better alternative to petrochemical plastic if you use cling wrap. I’ve been told sandwich bags are coming too. They also sell various kitchen bags, shopping bags, and other items generally made from plastic.
Recycled and biodegradable/compostable food service ware made from corn, potatoes, sugar cane fiber, recycled defective milk cartons, tree cellulose, and other natural materials. Items include plates and bowls, flatware, hot and cold cups and lids, sample cups, straws, napkins and wraps, “to-go” containers, food and sandwich bags, and more. There is a $250 minimum order, so find some friends to share with.
Biodegradable, compostable food service products, including disposable utensils made from corn, plates and bowls made from sugar cane stalks, hot and cold cups, napkins and more. Order for household use, your next party, or give this website to a local take out place that hasn’t yet converted (they sell biodegradable takeout containers too).
