Say goodbye to plastic cutlery and hello to SpudWare—cutlery made from 80% potato starch and 20% soy oil that’s just as heat resistant and every bit as strong as plastic cutlery. The kicker? It biodegrades in just 180 days! SpudWare can even be washed and reused, so you can eat your potatoes with potatoes for months to come.
In the US, a party pack of 50 spoons, 50 forks and 50 knives costs just $20 at Treecyle, readers in the UK can purchase potato starch cutlery from online retailer Vegware.

Interested in buying in bulk? Spudware is available at wholesale from Califonia-based wholesale distributor Excellent Packaging & Supply. Each SpudWare purchase from EPS comes with a Certification of Compostability from the American Society of Testing and Materials.

$20 from Treecycle
