Go Green without Going Broke with Our New Greenware Disposable Wooden Flatware!

By Ryan Loose

Phrases like Going Green, Eco-Conscious, Sustainable, Renewable, and Earth-Friendly have probably been polluting (yeah, that’s a pun. I went there) every magazine, E-zine, blog, Facebook page, and Tweet you’ve read for a long time. Look, everyone would like to start a "Green Initiative" at their business, at least I hope so, but there’s one big hindrance: it can be pretty darn expensive! Well, thanks to our new Greenware heavy weight wood flatware, Going Green, becoming more Eco-Friendly, using sustainable and renewable products, and starting your Green initiative has never been easier. (Hey, you search for the terms, I got to put them in here people. It’s my job). Trust me, you’re not going to find more durable, attractive, and inexpensive wood flatware anywhere. Period. Exclamation Point. Semi-Colon?

Made from solid birch wood that is harvested from F.S.C. (Forest Stewardship Council) Certified replanted / sustainable forests, Greenware heavy weight wood flatware is perfect for use in takeout meals, at cafes, and during outdoor catered events.

Greenware wooden utensils are also a great alternative to green, biodegradable plastic cutlery because they won’t break down, or turn to mush, if stored in high heat areas. They’re also burnable, which makes Greenware wooden forks, knives, and spoons ideal for use at summer camps or lodges. Greenware wooden forks, knives, and spoons are also biodegradable and compostable!

Sounds Good, But I Have Some Questions...

Not a problem! We’ve got answers to all of your questions in the FAQ section of each product description! Here’s some highlights.

Is Greenware wooden flatware compostable? How long does it take to break down?

How sharp is the knife? Are the spoon and fork suitable for any dish?
