Spudware | Disposable utensils made from taters.

Not so impressive looking, but remarkable in that they're made from 80% potato starch and 20% vegetable oil. Shame they don't seem to sell directly to consumers.

Made from readily available renewable resources, very interesting.

In the world of camping equipment, you can purchase cutlery made from Lexan. The advantage is that they're virtually unbreakable, and don't absorb colors or odors. As a result, they last for years, saving loads on non-renewable resources.

Joe from Vegware here...selling direct to consumers is on the way. We'll have an online shop for the US in a couple of weeks, and Europe from the start of September.

Regards, Joe.
