Five Types of Eco-Friendly Cutlery You'll Find Today

Every year, humans throw away 40 billion disposable spoons, forks, and knives. The huge number of disposable utensils end up as landfill waste that is rapidly deteriorating our environment. However, a zero-waste lifestyle has become popular among consumers in recent years, particularly millennials.

So as a business that deals with disposable utensils and cutlery, it's about time you change your practices. To ensure that you attract more customers with your environmentally safe practices, here are some things you can start offering.

Eco-Friendly Cutlery All Businesses Must Invest In

In recent years, most businesses have switched to eco-friendly packaging. However, it's disposable cutlery that remains to be a challenge. Now you can find these five eco-friendly cutleries too!

Eco-Friendly Spoons, Chopsticks, and Straws

Non-biodegradable plastic spoons and straws continue to add up to landfill waste. If you want to reduce your contribution to the 40 percent MSW, switch to bamboo or wheat-based (Bagasse) eco-friendly spoons, chopsticks, and biodegradable straws.

Eco-Friendly Compartment Containers

If you own a food truck or any other business that provides disposable serving, you must know about compartment containers. While many businesses don't offer eco-friendly compartment containers, you can serve food in these containers. Bagasse compartment containers are now available for you to order that are biodegradable, BPA-free, and look great!

Eco-Friendly Disposable Cups

Americans throw away 25 billion Styrofoam cups every year! This makes Styrofoam a leading contributor to sea and landfill waste. Make the switch today and choose eco-friendly disposable cups made of recyclable plastic or paper.

Eco-Friendly Bowls

Most takeout businesses offer bowls and plates made of non-recyclable plastic or Styrofoam. Now you have the choice to opt for bamboo or Bagasse-based eco-friendly bowls and reduce the environmental impact. Additionally, these eco-friendly alternatives to disposable cutlery are also lighter on the pocket.

Eco-Friendly Soup Containers

We all love takeout soups! But consumers are highly conscious of making environmentally safe choices and thus want cutlery that serves the purpose. With bamboo soup containers, you can continue to serve delicious soup to your customers in bowls that are eco- and health-friendly.
