Party supplies made from potatoes

Last week we had our ribbon cutting ceremony for thinkspace. My wife and I were talking about what kinds of food to provide to our guests and how should we handle the waste at the end of the party. We wanted to make sure that since we’re having a party we should try to green it up as much as possible. She found these awesome forks — called Spudware. The forks are biodegradable and compostable. They are made from 80% potatoes and 20% soy. They are amazingly sturdy and are stronger than some of the plastic forks I’ve used in the past. One really cool fact about these forks is that they are not one time use! They actually are dishwasher safe as they can handle high heat. The manufacturer says that have a shelf life of 5 years. This is a nice alternative to plastic disposable forks and perfect for those office party events.

    Spudware, LOL, what a great name with the potatoes. I have never heard of them. What a great find. I will definitely have to tell my office. We were just orienting our new group of pharmacy residents telling them that the most important thing to our boss is the recycling and that we are “green’! And perfect timing, we are running out of plastic forks.
