Re: Cafeteria Waste Reduction

Dick -

I just received a packet of sample materials and product information from a 
company who is making biodegradable cutlery, straws, plates, cups, waste 
bags, etc.  The materials are made out of corn starch based products.  The 
cutlery is quite sturdy and according to info breaks down very quickly in 
the landfills.

McDonalds is using their products in Europe and they will also be used at 
the Olympic games in Sydney, Australia.
