SpudWare Biodegradable and Compostable Cutlery – Made from Potatoes
Why go Spudware™? Currently, huge volumes of paper, plastic and styrofoam cutlery, tableware and food packaging are used and disposed of each year. To give an idea of the scale, an estimated 39 billion items of disposable cutlery are used in the US each year (source: The Food Packaging Institute, Washington, D.C.). That’s just outrageous! Switching to compostable foodware and packaging would remove the economic barrier to composting, as food waste, packaging, and tableware could simply be processed together.
Great for alternatives for restaurateurs who offer To Go service and for individuals or families with the smaller quantities available at Treecycle where you can get a set of 50 spoons-50 forks-50 knives for $20. Here’s the scoop on the Spudware cutlery:
- biodegrades in 180 days
- made from corn and potato
- GM free
- heat resistant up to 105C
- durable and reusable
- good feel and weight
Isn’t this what they use at Whole Foods for their takeout food service?
