RE: [GreenYes] Biodegradable cups for SolFest 2002
for bowls and plates - Enviroware brand are made of plant fiber.  They're
made by PMP - Pulp Mold Packaging Global, Inc 5912 Bolsa Ave Suite 108
Huntington Beach CA 92649.  Of course i'm sure you could order them
direct...Giant Foods used to sell them here and Wegmans still does.

Seventh Generation makes recycled paper plates - seventhgeneration.com - i
assume they're readily compostable...

Subject: [GreenYes] Biodegradable cups for SolFest 2002






Hello-

I'm part of the facilities and waste management team for SolFest,
(www.solarliving.org) a renewable energy and sustainable living festival in
Northern California.  We're working on making our festival as waste free as
possible and need some help finding a source of affordable, biodegradable
paper cups.

Last year we ordered from Biocorps and put all the used cups straight into a
large compost pile with all the organic and biodegradable waste generated
during the festival.

Currently we are having problems securing the amount of cups we need for the
festival.  Of course we are encouraging people to bring their own but need
to have a signifigant amount on hand for those who ocme unequipped.

Does anyonw have any contacts or ideas for companies doing either cups or
utensils that are intended for festival use and a trip to the compost pile?

Any ideas or suggestions would be most appreciated!

Cheers,

Paul Rosenbloom
