A Compostable Picnic

June 07, 2015

 

Don’t want to deal with regular plates and silverware for your big picnic? (Can’t really lug your finest china to the park, after all.) But we know you don’t want the waste of typical paper or plastic plates, either. The perfect solution: Bambu all-occasion bamboo plates and silverware.

They’re made from a renewable resource — 100% organic bamboo — and they’re compostable (they’ll biodegrade in four to six months)! Plus, they’re rather elegant, too, so they’re actually a pretty good match for your finest china.

With these supplies checked off your list, now you can start planning your menu! Bread and some delicious olive oils to dip it in? Some fresh summer salads? We’re hungry already.
