I have found a new Tablewear company in Publix! TerraWare says they are only available at the Whole Foods Market right now, and expanding, so that’s good that I saw them in Publix.

I picked myself up a set for the Baby Shower, and excited to try them out. The pack was only $1.99!

Here’s why these “Earth Friendly Cutlery” is so earth friendly AND better than the petroleum based products:

USES SUSTAINABLE RESOURCES
A portion of our product is made from GMO Free Cornstarch resin, which is a sustainable resource.

MADE FROM GMO FREE CORNSTARCH RESIN
The cornstarch resin used in TerraWare is free of genetically modified organisms.

STRONG & DURABLE
TerraWare’s formula combines GMO Free Cornstarch Resin with an ingredient for strength and durability.

BIODEGRADES IN 4 – 6 MONTHS
Studies show that with the right amount of moisture, oxygen and heat, TerraWare’s oxo-biodegradable plastic breaks down in about 4-6 months. This makes it perfect for at-home, in vessel composting.
If you don’t compost at home, then just include your used TerraWare products
with your regular trash. TerraWare will degrade in your city’s landfill too.

MICROWAVE AND DISHWASHER SAFE
Because TerraWare is resistant to heat up to 220°F, our products are dishwasher and microwave safe.  Other biodegradable materials used to make plastics, like PLA will not hold up to heat beyond 130 – 140°F.

COMPETITIVELY PRICED WITH MAINSTREAM ITEMS
The formulation, along with the fact that our injection molding facility is 100% vertical (they make their own corn starch resin from fields they control), enables the product to be available at a price consistent with mainstream cutlery.
