Don't Compost Them at Home
Bioplastic doesn’t belong in your home compost pile, regardless of whether it’s biodegradable or compostable. Utensils made from bioplastic won’t break down fully unless processed by an industrial facility.
BPI Logo? Compost Industrially
If you see the plastic item is marked with the BPI logo, that means it’s compostable in an industrial facility.
Ways to Reduce
Choose Reusable for Parties
Provide guests with reusable utensils when entertaining. Dishes only need to be washed to be reused time and time again.
Pack Reusable Utensils
Reduce plastic waste by packing a pair of to-go utensils for on-the-go meals. Metal or bamboo utensils, such as To-Go Ware, are best. Visit To-Go Ware’s online shop.
