What’s the most sustainable option for cutlery? First and foremost, start by using what you have! Until it’s no longer usable, of course, then do your best to dispose of it appropriately. But if you’re looking to buy new cutlery, you came to the right place. Don’t forget to browse through our kitchen tools if you’re currently renewing your kitchen and looking for more sustainable alternatives!
Did you know that, more often than not, wooden flatware is made from bamboo or plantation birch, which are both compostable? These are great and innovative substitutes for the common and wasteful plastic cutlery that ends up in landfills and takes ages to decompose itself.
It is a great idea to switch or buy more consciously if you’re renewing your flatware sets at home: ranging from a simple set of knife, fork, spoon, or chopsticks to the fancy cutlery you might need for an eight-course feast with a classic plant-based butter spreader, a plant-based cocktail fork, soup spoon, dessert spoon, and fork, as well as an ice cream scooper! We’ve got everything to fill up your tableware necessities.
There are also other very resourceful plant waste materials that can be used in manufacturing biodegradable utensils. To give an example, sugarcane pulp or bamboo can be amazing options for creating more eco-friendly and elegant alternatives to paper and plastic disposable products, such as plastic cutlery and plates.
These homeware, tableware, and kitchenware items, in general, can be the perfect first step in making your events, business environments, or home more sustainable! 🔁
Flatware isn’t the only homeware batch of items that we can be more mindful about. In fact, there are alternatives for the whole kitchen!
Here at Shop Like You Give a Damn, you can be sure to find ceramic dishes, wooden bowls, and recycled glassware to help you create a more socially and environmentally responsible home.
In simple terms: rather than using the plastic cutlery that comes with takeout orders, or at the workplace cafeteria, we can invest in sustainable flatware for our homes and for when we’re on the go! These are clear and relevant examples of how to implement low waste practices in our lifestyles.
