Cups >> Serve up toasty drinks like hot chocolate or apple cider in compostable hot cups from Eco-Products. The lining is made from domestically produced plant-based plastic instead of oil. For cold drinks, World Centric’s clear plastic-like cups come in a range of sizes and are made from 100 percent compostable corn grown in the US.

Plates >> Preserve plastic plates are recyclable and dishwasher safe so you can reuse them or simply recycle when finished. They come in colorful apple green and midnight blue.

Utensils >> Made from GMO-free cornstarch resin, TerraWare's forks, spoons, and knives are dishwasher and microwave safe, so they'll endure all your holiday festivities. Plus, they biodegrade in four to six months.

Napkins >> Serve finger food with Green Forest napkins that are whitened without chlorine bleach and are made from 100 percent recycled paper. Buying recycled reduces the need for virgin tree pulp, conserves oil and water, reduces air pollution, and saves landfill space.
