KMS Woodworks on Apr 01, 2013The best table ware will be real plates and silverware...anything disposable (or compostable) are far more waste full.Helpful Reply
Kimberly Barney on Apr 01, 2013I must agree with KMS. She could purchase all clear glass plates which you can find quite often at low prices or have a mix of dishes. The clear glass plates would allow her to dress them in any color or design that she wishes by simply placing decor on the bottom side of the plates.Helpful Reply
JesseConant on Apr 02, 2013The state of California has passed a law, assembly bill number 2417, stating that the words biodegradeable, oxo-biodegradable, degradable, and every possible synonym for those words, in effect, belong to the corn-based plastics (PLA) industry. No biodegradable plastic made out of naphtha, an otherwise useless industrial byproduct, may be labeled biodegradable, nor any synonym thereof, may, given current technlogy, be called biodegradable, even if they do, in fact, biodegrade in one day longer than 120 days. This is true even if the biodegradable plastic alternatives are far more likely to biodegrade in a landfill that the corn based plastic alternative. The net effect of this is to increase the demand for corn based plastics. The result of making non-food items out of corn has driven a price spike in the world grain supply that threatens hundreds of millions of impoverished third world citizens with starvation.More info comes from news center at http://www.biodegradabletableware.com.cn/Helpful Reply
