15 Biodegradable Products You’ll Use

Care Mail Peanuts -Made from corn and potato starch. Dissolves in water and won’t pollute ground water.

Please take note of the white and green color theme found in this post. It’s quite refreshing and clean, right? This post is inspired by a post I read awhile ago on Design*Sponge and by my thoughts about how important it is to buy items that will disappear when they are thrown away. I love recycling and I love reusing items but some items do not have a second life. I also love the idea that things can behave just like plants and natural stuff and disintegrate away. We carry lots of green office supplies and recycled office supplies on our site but today we’re focusing on the products that will disappear when you’re done.

What do you buy that’s biodegradable?

  • Collins Pt.

    Many companies have produced biodegradable utensils. Ecological plates are made from sugar can and reed pulp. Their producers insist on the fact that they are non-toxic, biodegradable, but at the same time they offer the client the same quality of a normal plate. Cornstarch, grass fibers and wood are two other materials used for the manufacture of biodegradable utensils and biodegradable cornstarch bags.

  • JoAnn

    Sunchips – the natural snack like cornchips – come in a biodegradable bag!

    Loved them anyway – now a more guilt-free snack!

  • Great information on green products. I wanted to add one that is being used in an area that is very important – bottles. ENSO Bottles offers a solution that will allow plastic bottles to be fully recyclable without impacting the current recycle streams and if placed in a landfill environment (which unfortunately most are) will biodegrade by mircobial breakdown with no harmful residues.

    Working together we can change the world.
