Anything we make out of plastic, we can probably use another product that doesn’t sit in a landfill forever and forever after it’s no longer any good. Still, there are times we need to use and toss for whatever reasons. Avani is the company that is filling the need for disposables that won’t destroy the planet.
The company specializes in creating biodegradable, single or limited use items. Think rain ponchos, plastic silverware, take out containers, plastic bags, etc. Their products work exactly the same as traditional plastic products only they’re not plastic. They’re made from cassava, sugar cane waste, corn starch and other renewable sources and can be tossed into trash where they will biodegrade.
There are always going to be situations where you need disposables (I mean, who doesn’t love take out?) and these products provide an alternative instead of falling back on plastic. Check out their line up of goods on their website.
