Product Description

Disposable, compostable and biodegradable bowls made from 100-percent bagasse, the sugarcane fiber that remains after extracting the juice from the sugarcane. Sugarcane is not only a readily renewable resource, but the sugarcane fiber can be turned into products normally made from plastic and paper and prevents the pollution from the normal burning of sugarcane waste after juice extraction. Our biodegradable bowls are soak proof, have no plastic or wax lining, and can be used for both hot and cold items. Please note, that though these compostable bowls are soak proof, hot items will cause the bowls to "perspire" and some condensation will form at the bottom of the bowls. A far superior alternative to styrofoam & plastic (non-biodegradable, petroleum derived, pollutant) and as well as paper bowls made from cutting down trees. We now offer "unbleached" bagasse bowls - in natural light brown color. Bleaching is usually unnecessary, creates pollution, and is mostly done using chlorine or chlorine compounds, which release "dioxins" - persistent organic pollutants which do not break down easily and accumulate in the food stream. We are slowly moving towards only carrying "unbleached" bagasse items as they become available to us. Please note, composting is required for biodegradation and these compostable plates will biodegrade within 30 days in a commercial composting facility, and within 90 days in a home composting system.

These were on super clearance on amazon, so I ordered some to try them out. I was shocked at how thin they are. They're almost as thin as 2 of those cheapo paper plates that always stick together. Far thinner than styrofoam or those natural potato-based plates and bowls.

They work well for about 15 minutes or so with liquids or hot foods, but then they start to get soggy. If you're going to be done in 15 minutes they'll work well, but if you have a bowl soup or something and then set it down and forget about it, you might come back to a mess of soup all over the table/floor.

I'd buy them again at the insanely cheap price I paid, since they were practically free, but the standard retail price is obscenely high.

These are great forks. Compostable, durable, and very nice as disposable forks go. That said, I found them today for $2.99 at Whole Foods. If you're buying multiple boxes, it's probably worth a trip to your grocery store.

Style Name: BowlSize: 11-1/2-Ounce 20 Count Verified Purchase
Ok price, ok bowl. My problem with it is that the page says soak proof but the bowl does not say soak proof anywhere. So why do they think it's soak proof. I don't really want to waste a bowl or make a mess to test it. Either way even if it is soak resistant they shouldn't claim that if the company who made it doesn't even advertise it on the bowls. The materila is rough not smooth just an fyi

To begin, these are certainly a better alternative to full on plastic. I was looking to use these for a large picnic and needed a couple of boxes. I used them along with their compostable plates, and thought I was on the right track. What went wrong was when they arrived. First, they are made in China. I guess I had hoped that for the cost (about $7 for 24 spoons) that I would at least get made in the USA. But no. Then the more difficult issue - the "compostable" part is only if used in a commerical grade compost center. So do I have this in my backyard? No! I have a little home composter that would never allow this to break down. AND the package says it will take 6 months in that condition! So I am hugely disappointed, and will not buy again.

What I really need to do is go to a garage sale and get some real spoons and just save them until my picnic next year.

As a side note? I thought I could only buy these here on Amazon. Not at all true - I ended up needing more and found them at Whole Foods....at half the price too!

I use these spoons in place of silverware and plastic spoons. I use on average two of them a day and they are great for cereal, soups, eating a bowl of veggies, etc.

The only downside is they will snap with moderate pressure. They are not as flexible as plastic spoons but even after using several hundred of these spoons I have snapped fewer than 5 of them by accident.

This product is super cool. We used at holiday party. The utensils upheld to hot soup, lasagna, meatballs and sauce, ice cream, cereal (kids really liked them), etc. Super sturdy and conscious friendly.

Although I am making a concerted effort to not buy disposable items, it is great to have these as a supplement to our camping supplies. We wash and re-use them multiple times and feel better about disposing of them when the time comes. They are sturdy and the handle is attractive enough to use them for casual special occasion parties.

Looking for an eco friendly utensil. Just not a fan of wood utensils. In general their tines too short on the fork, worry about splinters as they all seem to have a few. This cornstarch product was very nice, similar to plastic but eco friendlier. Very sturdy, can be reused too.
