If you go down to the woods today you're sure of a big surprise. Not because the teddy bears are having their picnic, but because the whole place will probably be littered with eco-unfriendly plastic plates, cups and utensils left behind by lazy picnickers. And that's precisely why your planet-hugging pals at Firebox love Biodegradable Picnic Ware.
Bury it to compost!
Perfect for festival fans, campers, picnic nibblers and anyone else who enjoys al fresco dining, this four-piece set is made from 100% biodegradable cassava. Yes, cassava, the perennial tropical plant used to make tapioca. Don't you know anything?
Perfect for Glasto'!
Each set comprises cassava plates, bowls and cups; plus wooden spoons, forks and knives. We'll even throw in a camouflage or gingham cloth that you can keep and wear as a rock 'n' roll bandana in case you ever decide to split a pork pie with Bono. Talking of eating, all the cassava bits and bobs are edible. Yes, really!
The Gingham and Camo Biodegradable Picnic Ware Sets
The crockery is re-usable if washed with care, but should you choose to return it to Mother Earth it will disintegrate within a week if left standing in water, or decompose in a few months if left on a compost pile. It even returns natural starch back into the soil. Al Gore will love you for it!
Just think, armed with a pile of Biodegradable Picnic Ware you won't have to do any whiffy washing up after a nice day out. Whether you're at Glyndebourne or Glastonbury, Bestival or Big Chill, you can enjoy your nosh safe in the knowledge your plates and bowls won't end up amongst a mountain of carrier bags on some horrible landfill site.
Drink and forget about washing up!
If this incredibly practical set doesn't become a big hit with eco-friendly foodies we won't just eat our hats, we'll eat our Biodegradable Picnic Ware too! Mmm... cassava.
