The Jets may not be playing in the Super Bowl this year, but you can still have a "GREEN" party for the big game! As you plan for your party this year, think about implementing even just a few things to help reduce the amount of trash you have after the game is over. If your party is small, maybe you can get away with not using disposable plates, cups, silverware and use servicewear that you can wash and reuse. If that is not an option or you are expecting a large crowd, consider purchasing dishes, drinkware and serviceware that is biodegradable and/or compostable. Here are a couple of options:
Preserve Products has a fantastic line of plates, cups and utensils all made from recycled plastic and can be reused many times because they are really durable! Plus, when you are done with them, you can recycle them with all of your other #5 plastics! They come in bright, cheerful colors so they also look great on the table at any party.
Solo Bare also makes great flatwear, bowls and cups that are made from cornstarch and is biodegradable and compostable.
Stalkmarket has a great line of plates, bowls and cups made from biodegradable sugar cane fiber and are Biodegradable, recyclable, and home compostable. They are also Microwave-safe, freezable, and oil- and cut-resistant. They have great soup bowls so if your menu includes chili, then get these sturdy bowls! Many of their products are available on Amazon.com and you can even save an extra 15% with their Subscribe and Save program!
