Instead of clogging-up our landfills with plastics Excellent Packaging & Supply
has an innovative solution — utensils made out of potatoes named SpudWare. 80% potato starch and 20% soy oil make up the very simple formula, which according to manufacturer allows the cutlery to take heat. You'll need that kind of heat tolerance since you wouldn't like hot tomato soup to melt or bend while you are using these Earth-friendly disposable utensils. After about 6 months the utensils will biodegrade in the landfill and everyone is happy.
Still, like most "green" products SpudWare utensils are more expensive than their conventional plastic counterparts, which is a shame, because we hope these kind of products would be adapted by the general public at a more accelerated rate. Fortunately, the restaurant industry is taking notice and biodegradable disposable product use is increasing every year.
