Compostable Cutlery Made From Cereplast

These utensils are composed of Cereplast, a biodegradable resin made from corn and potato starch. Cereplast actually qualifies as a "compostable" plastic, which means it composts more readily than "biodegradable" bioplastic (you can read more about the definitions here). It was created by the company Cereplast as a cost competitive alternative to plastic, and it can actually be processed with conventional plastic equipment. The cutlery is marketed under the brand name Nat-Ur, which we covered previously on Treehugger. You can buy some of the cutlery for yourself here. :: Cereplast
