A Hand Picked Cornucopia of Wonderful Things To Make The World a Better Place




Here at PandM Ecogear, we recognise that there are many occasions where compostable and biodegradable kitchenware has a big advantage over breakable ceramics and non biodegradable plastic disposable kitchenware. These non biodegradable items are not good for the environment and whilst convenient for picnics, barbecues and parties, they will most likely be discarded after use and end up in a landfill where they will not degrade due to the materials, such as plastics, that they contain. Our range of kitchenware is fully biodegradable and compostable which is convenient and also good for the environment. They can be added to the compost bin to degrade and will provide valuable nutrients for vegetables and flowers. It should be noted, however, that it is better to break up the items before placing in the compost bin to ensure that they break down quickly and it is also better to not add too many all at the same time to ensure that the balance of the compost is maintained.

Due to the very nature of the kitchenware, items should be stored in an airtight container prior to use to ensure that they stay completely dry !

There are alternatives to compostable kitchenware, however, our preference is for the fully biodegradable range that we have available.

Paper plates, for instance, contain a great deal of recycled wood pulp that is obtained from recycled paper products and will biodegrade however, many of these paper products are coated in plastic which prevents them from biodegrading.

Traditional ceramic plates can still be environmentally friendly especially if bought second hand from such places as charity shops and are washed in an environmentally friendly detergent … but who wants to face a mountain of washing up after a picnic, party or barbecue !

Edible plates are another fun alternative but after a filling meal, many of them will end up in the compost bin after being half eaten anyway …

Of course, it is not just picnics, barbecues and parties that our biodegradable range comes into its own ….. many people eat away from home such as in the work place, school or university where the use of your own personal kitchenware such as plates is ideal … and can be taken home at the end of the day and added to the compost bin !
