So you've figured out that becoming eco chic should be at the top of every domestinista's todo list. Congratulations! Perhaps you've procured a beautiful new set of bamboo dishtowels, have created kitchen recycling station or filled your crisper with a bounty of home grown, organic veggies! No matter what steps you've taken to add a bit of green to your home, you're certainly to be commended.
However, with summertime making its glorious arrival (despite some ominous looking clouds saying otherwise) eco chic domestinistas are faced with something of a dilemma. What to do if you'd love to throw a festive, sun-filled barbecue, or even whisk your significant other away for an impromptu picnic, but simply hate the thought of buying paper of styrofoam plates?
Using your everyday dishware is an option, assuming you have enough for all of your guests and don't mind a whole lot of washing up afterwards or the chance of breakage.
Thankfully, there is a wonderful and even quite stylish option, and that is Compostable Serveware from Green Living. Green Living offers plain white plates and bowls made from Bagasse, which is the fiber left over from sugarcane stalks after they've been crushed, flatware made out of potato starch and soy, and my absolute fav -bamboo veneer plates, which I happen to think would be perfection at a green wedding, backyard birthday soiree or other festive event that has eco friendly entertaining on the menu. All of Green Living's compostable dishware is certified organic, FDA approved, free of any dyes or bleaches and will biodegrade in 4-6 months after disposal.
Eco friendly, chic, AND affordably priced. I am eeeeeeing with absolute delight. Time to put my order in, start perfecting my version of this luscious-looking Jerk Chicken Panini I saw the other day, and grab the hubby for a romantic picnic by the lake.
