We highly encourage our zero waste event customers to use reusable plates, cups, and utensils whenever possible. However, if you choose to purchase disposable products when using our services, we ask that you select compostable products. Following is a guide to help you find the compostable disposables that are right for your event.
Note that the paper goods should say "compostable" or 100% paper (with no coating).
Biodegradable does not necessarily mean compostable.
Chinet plates - Costco, Target, etc.
All paper napkins are acceptable, including colored napkins.
