Alternatives to Plastic Utensils

Bamboo Reusable

Made from bamboo, normally organic certified. Some reusable utensils can be composted, although that might mean composted in an industrial facility not the home compost.

Bamboo Single Use

Often used at large events. These can be composted in a home compost. CAUTION - biodegradable isn't the same as compostable. 


Single use made from natural materials made from flour, rice and wheat. Can also be fed to animals and often disintegrate when water is added.


Stainless steel. Long lasting.

Plant, corn starch

These are often not compostable. But can be reused and a better choice than plastic.
