Eco-Products Kitchen Review
We were excited to get an email from Eco-Products recently – (www.ecoproductsstore.com). If you’re unfamiliar with the company, Eco-Products manufactures biodegradable disposables, like cups, plates and utensils and they are based out of Arizona.
We dig sustainability, they dig sustainability and so they thought we should try out their products and then do a product review. We were happy to try them out.
The plates and bowls are made from sugarcane and are an alternative to traditional paper or polystyrene – we definitely approve of this. They are also BPI certified compostable and made from a 100% reclaimed and renewable material.
They held up great for one time use – of course we believe you shouldn’t use something just once to begin with BUT… there are times when you have an event or outside gathering and using traditional plates, cups and bowls isn’t reasonable. In those circumstances we would approve and use Eco-Products!
We also tried out the cutlery. They have several types but we received their Plantware line. It was strong and certainly could be used multiple times and it has a heat tolerance up to 200° F. It is 100% renewable, BPI certified compostable and ASTM compliant. Once again we don’t generally believe in disposable items but if you do find yourself in a situation where you can’t bring silverware this would be a good alternative. And remember you CAN use these multiple times as long as you wash them – probably by hand.
