Susty Party is proud to be a Company with a Conscience at My Conscience, My Choice.
For spring and summer graduations, weddings and other seasonal festivities: here’s some sustainable party ware worth getting excited about. The founder of this brand, Emily Doubilet, subscribes to the statement, “To Change the World, Throw a Better Party!” Though, as she educates, parties and events generate a huge amount of waste (just second to the waste generated by the construction industry!) Of course, the waste from parties is often comprised of non-biodegradable material such as Styrofoam and/or plastic, in addition to the excessive paper goods. Enter this brand’s line of flatware, cups, plates, bowls, straws, and other sustainable fun products made using PLA plant-based plastics, SFI/FSC paper and wood, palm leaf, starch and bagesse materials. Besides being completely sustainable the line is “party chic” versus the stodgy or predictable styles of chain store brands.
The tastefully festive and colorful plates and cutlery are compostable1, non-toxic, and highly durable. The cutlery, made out of PLA plant-based plastics, is sold in festive shades – both dark primary colors and bright pastels and reusable. The compostable 7″ or 10″ starch plates are made from tapioca starch and grass fiber, a composition invented by an aerospace engineer, and are microwave safe, oven safe, and freezer safe. They are also sturdy enough to hold heavy, messy, wet food. In addition, they are certified by the only program that verifies products for biodegradability in home compost piles. The plates come in various pastel and dark festive colors; they are dyed naturally with mineral pigments and then baked giving each piece a unique and subtle coloring variation. All pieces are sold in small and bulk quantities to satisfy your needs of dinner parties, small soirees or large events. Consider matching plates and cutlery with the compostable starch bowls, clear PLA cups or sustainably harvested SFI-certified paper and PLA-lined cups. Who wouldn’t want to merge eco-friendliness, performance, and chic festivity? Consider making this switch so that after all the fun, your waste will not put a damper on your spirits or your conscience. Party on, responsibly!
