I try to be eco-friendly whenever I can, and pretty much hate the concept of plastic cups and utensils since not only are they made with petroleum, but they take just way too long to break down. Sometimes though it’s more convenient to use a disposable utensil than a metal one (like when I don’t have any clean dishes left but my dishwasher isn’t quite full enough to run a load!)
A few months ago I stumbled across some World Centric corn-starch utensils. I thought I’d bring these to your attention.
These utensils are freakin’ fantastic! They’re durable, and since they’re made out of corn starch I can place them right into my compost pile in the back yard and not have to worry about anything. They’re also pretty cheap, too!
