Biodegradable and compostable picnic disposables

credit: Design*Sponge

We've got a great BBQ weekend coming up in the northeast. Planning a picnic in the park or beach is one of my favorite warm weather activities, but I am always faced with the dilemma of having to use disposable plates, cups and silverware which can lead to a mountain of trash. For some great solutions and the latest on new biodegradable one-use picnic supplies, check out this great post from Design*Sponge.

This is a great idea. I had no idea that there were compostable picnic disposables until recently. I would love to hear more about logistics involved in disposing of them. Thanks.

This is awesome and we should support such attempts and use them.Say no to plastic to save the earth from further clogging.

It is a great idea to use the biodegradable ones if they have to be disposable.The dump is increasing by the day and the plastics clogging the earth and polluting the environment.

this is a great idea. I love picnics but don't like foam plates and such. I think that my family will be going on a lot more picnics this year.

It is a very nice idea to use biodegradable picnic disposables. We all should follow and promote this idea for a pollution free future. Thanks for sharing.

This is a wonderful idea! I had never heard of these before fairly recently, and it would make such a big difference if everyone used them.

Such an admirable blog. I believe it's great to have kids involved with the environment because in that way, they would also learn more.
