  1. I haven’t heard of the bowl before but I have heard of recyclable tableware, a spoon made from bamboo. This type of cookware is a good alternative to plasticware that people use and then throw out after one time use.

  2. Great post! Thank you for sharing! What a neat idea, great for camping and easy compost! They almost seem to be a novelty purchase – it would be interesting to see how they would be marketed and perceived by consumers. Will be interesting to follow!
