Unfortunately, such a measure does not completely prohibit the use of plastic utensils. We believe that consumers who are not entirely eco-conscious will continue to request plastic utensils to avoid the time-consuming task of doing the dishes.
What can be done to completely eliminate the plastic waste generated by take-out orders?
A set of fully biodegradable utensils would be a perfect solution for that! The ECOWOOD Store catalog includes two sets of birch wood utensils that decompose completely two months after use. Each set is wrapped in craft paper and includes a fork, knife, and spoon, or the same items plus a napkin. This set is a cost-effective alternative and can be utilized the same way as a plastic set.
