Fair trade, compostable, biodegradable dishware made from sugar

Stkm_bagasse_sets_lrg

It's great to see "Made in China" on disposable products that are actually fair trade and won't be around long after I'm compost myself.  Branch Biodegradable Plates, Cups + Utensils are made from bagasse, which is extracted from the sugar cane.  The utensils are made from 4:1 mix of potato starch and vegetable oil.  So if you end up crashing on a desert island, after you've eaten all the rations, you can give a try to melting these down and fermenting them into a digestif.  25 bowls for $4 USD, 50 cups for $7 USD, and 50 sets of utensils for $13.50.  [GT]
