I mean, I could definitely see it coming – with all of the companies jumping onto the ‘green’ bandwagon – it’s only a matter of time before a great company like Solo – who provides us with awesome options for disposable dinnerware – would jump right in.
Solo recently sent me a picnic package – including their new ‘Bare by Solo’ product line. It was in perfect time too, because some friends were having a huge multi-family garage sale and there were about 15 of us that needed to eat lunch!
I’m pretty sure I don’t have to convince you all of how awesome it is to use disposables vs. spending all day washing dishes…
But how environmentally friendly is it?
To showcase their commitment to sustainability and spread the word about making smart dinnerware choices, Solo recently hit the streets of Chicago to Celebrate Earth Day with a Solo ‘Garden’ parade float made out of Solo Cups.
Check out their video here, it’s pretty neat!
It all seems pretty good – except, that my Bare by Solo plates were all broken like this. They kind-of… shattered. I’m sure it’s more the exception than the rule. Probably had something to do with the two toddlers in my house… We decided to give them a try anyway – and they seemed to work ok. We heated a hot dog on one of the plates, and I was worried that the juices of the hot dog might … melt… the plate – being that the plate is compostable – But it didn’t.
One of my favorite items from Solo is their ‘My Solo Cup’. So often at parties I’m working so hard on the food – and constantly reminding people to write their names on their cups. I put out several permanent markers – but almost always they get misplaced.
This way, it’s FUN to write your name on the cup!
And with the summer months upon us, it’s the biggest time of the year for my family to enjoy get-togethers, BBQ’s, picnics, camping, and more where we would typically use disposables.
So why shouldn’t our options for disposables be eco-friendly?
