Swap Out Paper plus Plastic for Plants this Earth Day

Created by a green urban designer, Repurpose’s innovative line of green, single-serve tableware made exclusively from plants is now available nationwide in stores.

Repurpose’s cups, bowls, plates, forks, spoons and knives are made from corn, sugar and bamboo, all of which are annually-renewable resources. And unlike traditional plastic or even paper items, all Repurpose products are 100% compostable in an industrial composter in 90 days (instead of sitting in a landfill forever). But they still won’t melt in your hot soup, or warp with cold, wet ice cream!Repurpose compostables

Some of the other standout features of the Repurpose line are what the products do not contain; all Repurpose products are BPA-free, chlorine-free, petroleum-free and use only soy-based inks. Furthermore, fewer fossil resources are required to produce Repurpose tableware, which lowers our overall carbon footprint.

“At Repurpose, we are as committed to exceptional quality as we are to true sustainability,” says Lauren Gropper, founder and CEO of Repurpose. “Now that our products have nationwide distribution in stores, we are in a position to help more people make smarter, better and still affordable choices for themselves, their families and the environment. We want to change the world—one fork, one plate and one cup at a time.”
