Ban plastic and styrofoam!

After almost a year of investigation, consideration, and trials, we now have compostable and biodegradable take-out containers, cups, bowls, even cutlery.

The cups and lids are made from a plastic manufactured from PLA corn sugar rather than petroleum.

The take-out containers are sturdy, microwavable, and also biodegradable and compostable.  they’re made from sugarcane, grass, and reed plasma.

The platters are also sturdy, and made of sugarcane, grass, and reed plasma.

The cutlery shown here is compostable and biodegradable.  It is heat-resistant, microwavable, and freezer safe.  They’re made from sugar cane fiber, a natural by-product of the sugar refining process.

What now?  I would like to work with all of the restaurants in Charlevoix to replace our environmentally-unfriendly take-out containers with environmentally-friendly ones.  And I’d like to see Charlevoix’s City Council ban the use of syrofoam and plastic for this purpose.   And here’s the best part:  it really doesn’t cost any more to use these products than it does to use the harmful ones.
