Growing up and living in the Midwest gives us a strong appreciation for the use of the natural resources we're surrounded by. Dandelion dinnerware is a plastic that's made from corn pellets and is a great, safe and eco-friendly alternative for mealtimes. Details and pricing after the jump...
These Dandelion products
do two things really well. First, the company is taking great strides to use a reduce our dependency on both petroleum-based plastics and disposable ware in general, as it's an essential step toward a healthier future for our families and our environment. Dandelion uses a unique corn (PLA) formula and unlike conventional plastic, which is largely made from petroleum, their bioplastic is primarily made from corn! Polylactic acid (PLA) requires significantly less fossil resources, and generates far fewer green house gases than conventional plastic. And corn is a renewable and sustainable resource.
Outside of being great for the environment, Dandelion's dinnerware really has kids in mind. Their spoons are extra deep, ensuring food actually arrives in their tummys without falling off twice before making it there. Their bowls and plates are easy to grip and help little fingers take control when it comes to eating on their own.
Their pricing is budget friendly with an 8 pack of utensils costing $6.99, a 2 pack of plates comes in at $7.99 and a set of bowls is $7.00.
