Compost your plate?

There's been a number of companies that have introduced tableware that can be composted instead of landfilled, but the problem has often been that the materials break down with heat. In other words, your compostable coffee cup starts to biodegrade as you use it.

Solution? Water and leaves.

This company makes compostable flatware that be reused, refrigerated, and microwaved! And it takes about three months to compost.

Hat tip to Triple Pundit for the story.

Not technically correct that they'll start composting as soon as you take them out the wrapper...but thanks for sharing :)

I never said they compost as soon as you take them out of the wrapper. Try reading before writing.
