Out With The Bad And In With The Good: Biodegradable Silverware & Plates

10.09.2011 · Posted in Uncategorized

Thinking about buying some more plastic silverware and plates for your dorm when you come back after the long weekend?

Why not get some environmentally friendly ones instead!

               One example of environmentally friendly dispoable silverware and plates is ultra green, a company that produces its silverware using plastic made from constarch and its plates using paper made from sugarcane. The sugarcane plates break down into natural elements in 90 days, and the silverware breaks down into natural elements in only 150 days! By using alternative materials for their silverware and plates, ultra green saves trees from being cut down and saves landfills from being cluttered by more petro-based plastics that contaminate our planet.

These products can be found at your local Stop & Shop!
