Picnic and BBQ season is just around the corner, so don’t let your backyard fiesta create loads of plastic waste in the form of disposable plates and utensils. Reusable dishware is best, but if you absolutely must choose disposables, look for new biodegradable dinnerware that won’t clog up your local landfill.
Greenwave produces forks, knives, and spoons from non-toxic plant starches. The cutlery is fine for use with cold or hot foods, and once used it’s biodegradable or compostable. Greenwave utensils are larger and sturdier than flimsy plasticware, so besides being easier on the environment, they work better too.
Biodegradable Plates & Bowls
Stalkmarket plates and bowls are manufactured from sugar cane fiber, a byproduct of the sugar refining process. They’re heat resistant up to 200 degrees, microwave- and freezer-safe, and entirely biodegradable/ compostable.
