									Please Don’t Eat the Forks
Here is another good marketer at the All Things Organic Show. This one promotes plates and
things. You eat the food; the worms will eat the plates and utensils. That is, of course, if you are
using Ultra Green utensils that are 100% biodegradable, compostable and sustainable according

preferable, but not always the most practical. Composting your place setting is the next best
thing to reuse.
