If we all stop using plastic straws and utensils will that really un-strangle our oceans? Not likely. It can take 1000 years to breakdown a fork that is labeled “biodegradable.”
But there is another solution: COMPOSTABLE PRODUCTS and packaging that will decompose along with food garbage. Below is a list of a few of many companies that make compostable products. Consider sharing this information with restaurant owners in your town and sending it to corporate headquarters for national chain restaurants.
● Good Start Packaging
● Green Paper Products
● World Centric
● Tayst Coffee Roaster (Bio-degradable K-cups)
