Eat Potatoes with Potatoes – Use Biodegradable Tater Ware

Every day, we are faced with the question of whether it is greener to serve meals on reusable dishes and waste water to wash them with, or contribute to the landfill problem by using paper plates and plastic utensils.   Biodegradable Food Service Products (abbreviated BDFS) has a solution to this dilemma by using the humble potato to manufacture a whole line of food service products that include clam shell take-out trays, “silver”ware, plates, cups with lids, and deli trays.

Tater Ware is heat stable to 375 degrees, meets FDA requirements for direct food contact, freezer safe, microwarmable, and suitable for both hot and cold foods.

The companies “secret sauce” appears to be a novel process for polymerizing plant starch.  Their products are both biodegradable AND compostable, which is a double benefit.

My daughter’s school, ISTP in Palo Alto, CA  is going green by switching to Tater Ware for their lunch services.  If everyone switched to biodegradable products, it would make a huge difference in our world!
