Here at Vegware US we have been slowly replacing all of our biodegradable products with superior compostable ones. We believe in what we do and because of that we feel we must do it to the best of our ability. Supplying our customers with the best and most advanced products technology has to offer. We do this by creating products with a full life cycle that is both traceable and renewable from start to finish. That is why we are introducing our new compostable CPLA Cutlery as a replacement for our previous biodegradable PSM. These products have very different chemical properties but carry near identical physical properties as our previous line but with added rigidity and usability. This new fully compostable line of cutlery pushes the boundaries of "green" products even further and brings you the best in what's available today.

Connecticut Company Brings New Eco-Friendly Products to the US
VegwareUS to help diners "Bring It Home Green"Danielson, CT Novemeber 19, 2008
VegwareUS, a newly formed Danielson, Connecticut based company, has signed an exclusive deal to market Vegware™ brand eco-friendly restaurant supply products throughout the North American continent and recently announced the initial distribution of eco-friendly products to North America. Vegware's line of plates and bowls, knives and forks, cups and to-go boxes are all created from natural products and are all fully biodegradable and/or compostable.
Originally sold in Europe by Scotland based Vegware, these high quality, environmentally sustainable products reflect the growing corporate shift towards both sounder manufacturing options as well as smarter end-of-life procedures. At a time when America's dependence on foreign energy has become a definite liability, VegwareUS owner Robert Bond proudly points out that not a single item in the company's inventory contains any petroleum based substance.
"We're hoping to set the example," explains Bond, "Vegware's fiber based products present saner ecological and economic options that could have a significant impact in reducing the amount of waste generated from disposable tableware and cutlery products."
North American consumers are ordering take-out meals in record numbers. U.S. government statistics show American families spend $3,360 a year to avoid cooking at home. Currently, an estimated 39 billion items of disposable cutlery make their way to American landfills yearly (source: The Food Packaging Institute, Washington, D.C.). Unlike traditional cutlery, Vegware products are designed to breakdown naturally, eliminating unnecessary waste.
In addition to helping to manage waste, the manufacturing process for creating Vegware products also represents a breakthrough in both simplicity and eco-efficiency. Renewable raw materials, such as corn, potato and cassava provide the fiber and starch which comprise the building blocks of these items. Bagasse, one of the most popular Vegware offerings, is a byproduct of sugar cane which is made from the dry fibrous residue left after the stalks have been crushed to extract juice. Bagasse plates and bowls are created by a high-heat, high-pressure process that requires the use of considerably less energy than that used when pulping wood for similar paper products. These pieces are remarkably durable and especially well suited for holding hot, wet or oily foods. An added benefit to Vegware's ease in manufacturing will be the flexibility it offers in both servicing specific client needs and in keeping up with changing market trends.
