Repurpose is a wonderful line of eco-friendly tableware
By Carla Snuggs
Summer entertaining is upon us and being green is always in style. For your next summer picnic, brunch or cookout, ditch the paper and plastic products – and swap in some plants – with LA-based company, Repurpose. 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.
I love that Repurpose’s cups, bowls, plates, forks, spoons and knives are made from corn, sugar and bamboo, all of which are annually-renewable resources. 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). Repurpose products use only soy-based inks and fewer fossil resources are required to produce Repurpose tableware, which lowers our overall carbon footprint.
