Biodegradable and Compostable Cutlery: Reduces Its Environmental Impact

Share Article, based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, continues to reduce its carbon footprint by introducing sustainable cutlery and other products from renewable sources.

Consumers are looking for green products, so we're supplying them.

Even cutlery can be eco-friendly. Just ask Jeff Holmes. As president and CEO of Mr. TakeOutBags, Holmes already provides a wide selection of recyclable, compostable, and biodegradable food service disposables. The newest of these are biodegradable cutlery and potato starch compostable cutlery.

As part of an effort to stock more sustainable products, has been working tirelessly to phase out wasteful packaging. "We no longer carry Styrofoam products," Holmes says. "Consumers are looking for green products, so we're supplying them." EarthSense™ compostable PLA cutlery and EcoSense ™ biodegradable plastic cutlery are two such products that exemplify the company's ongoing commitment to green business practices.

Elegant yet sturdy, the black disposable EcoSense ™ cutlery contains a food-safe additive that allows the polypropylene plastic to biodegrade within months. Polypropylene is a durable, renewable alternative to polystyrene. Another eco-friendly option, the EarthSense™ compostable PLA cutlery, is made from all-natural renewable potato starch, so it will compost naturally and leave no waste. Like real silverware, both varieties are heavy duty cutlery, shatter-resistant, and they can withstand high heat up to 220 F.

Demand for compostable and biodegradable packaging is on the rise, and as consumers grow more conscious of their environmental impact, Mr. TakeOutBags tries to reduce its own. By introducing more products made from renewable sources and recycled elements, is always on hand with an eco-friendly packaging alternative.

In addition to eco-friendly disposable cutlery, offers compostable coffee cups and EcoSleeves, compostable soup cups, PLA corn plastic cups, Bio Plus TERRA compostable take out boxes, Bio Plus EARTH recycled paper take out boxes, paper shopping bags, disposable dinnerware, food grade tissue paper, plastic food containers with lids, catering trays, and many other products that can be custom-printed.
