I could’ve sworn that we’ve posted these before, but just as well that we haven’t seeing as they’re a perfect fit for today. Yes, today is Earth Day. What does that mean to you? Hopefully something, as it looks like our little planet needs all the help it can get. If you want to see what else you can do (in addition to recycling, because you already do that, right?), take a look at Worldwatch’s suggestions. I bet there’s a few on there that won’t hurt you to add to your weekly routine.
So, now that’s said, let’s take a look at these fully biodegradable and compostable pieces. Intended for single-use, they’re beautiful alternatives to regular paper plates. Sample kits start at $18.00 and contains one of each of the 14 pieces in the WASARA collection along with a coupon for $20 off your next purchase. Individual pieces in packs of 12 start at $9.00.
