Saving the Planet -
One wooden fork or compostable container at a time!
Please use unbleached napkins, wooden cutlery, and compostable containers. Unfortunately cups and mugs are an issue as many of them are PLA products and Capital Compost won't accept them from events - the quantities are too great and gum up the works. If there is no other alternative to PLA please try and get recyclable cups instead. We know this won't be possible for coffee mugs - your "compostable" PLA-lined mugs are still better than the other sort.
There are several suppliers of acceptable products and one good supplier, Ecoware, who will give our stallholders a 20% discount. If you are going to Island Bay as well you could also use the products there! Ecoware sell wooden cutlery and other fully compostable packaging, here is a brochure and price list.
They do sell PLA products but this list only has the items acceptable for our compost stations. If you are planning to ask Ecoware about a discount its best to contact Luke Wishnowsky, their National Sales Manager, on his private email email@example.com
, and tell him you are one of our stallholders.
