We all know that traditional disposable tableware adds a lot to landfill. It is usually not biodegradable and as a result when used by patrons at cafes and restaurants it contributes to the worsening of the environment.

The great news is there are green tableware alternatives which are compostable, using renewable resources and less energy to make them. Reducing the carbon foot print and showing customers you care.

Here are the top 10 most popular eco disposable tableware items:

Gourmet Wooden Pine Boats and Cones

Gourmet pine boats are terrific for side dishes or appetizers. Gourmet pine cones are popular at parties and cafes for holding hot chips and are also terrific at weddings, for holding confetti and rose petals.

Made from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified plantation birch the boats and cones are delicate and yet robust. They have an elegant and clean look and are water & heat resistant and compostable in a home composting facility.
