2. Compostable Dinnerware

There are so many varieties of compostable dinnerware it can become overwhelming. There are those made from corn, fallen leaves, palm leaves and even sugarcane. These are a good choice for those not wanting to deal with dishes after cooking up a holiday meal, but who also realize the hardship of disposable plates on Mother Earth. They are sturdy and hold up well to hearty and even juicy meals. There is still some question regarding how quickly they compost, but they do indeed break down over time. Those with a more fibrous appearance seem to break down more readily and also seem the most interesting in appearance.
