Whether you’re hosting an intimate family gathering at home or trying to organize an office party, figuring out how you’re going to serve food and drinks is always a struggle. Glassware and ceramic are durable but breakable; plastic plates and cups are easy to clean up but create a lot of waste.
Fortunately, there’s an easy way to go green. Dinnerware from Repurpose offers plant-based compostable serving goods that allow you to throw a party without creating a tsunami of plastic waste.
The heavy-duty compostable plates can stand up to large servings of stuffing and pasta and come in 6-inch ($8), 9-inch ($16), and 10-inch ($18) sizes. If you need to contain some messier entrees, they also offer 16-ounce bowls ($12).
For drinks, you can opt for 16-ounce Grande cups ($18) suitable for hot liquids as well as 12-ounce wine cups ($17). A 12-ounce cold serve cup ($11) is ideal for soft drinks, while the 16-ounce cocktail cup ($18) can handle your adult beverages.
Repurpose also offers an assorted cutlery pack ($9) and degradable drinking straws ($9). If you want to grab a party bundle, Repurpose also offers a set of 84 plates, 100 cups, and 48 pieces of cutlery for $55.
All products are made with upcycled plant fiber, the bioplastic polylactic acid (PLA), and polybutylene adipate terephthalate (PBAT). Once used, they can be washed by hand for re-use or discarded for compost, though they’re not dishwasher-safe. Microwaving on high heat is also not recommended.
