My primary concern as a mother is the health of my child. I look into all the matters pertaining to her health and basic hygiene like her food habits, regular lifestyle and exercise as part of her daily routine. However till recently I didn’t pay much attention to the fact that she eats her food in plastic dishes and bowls because those always attracted her.
One day, she was taught in school about the hazards of excessive use of plastic and she insisted on minimalistic usage of plastic products. Sometimes children have a lot to teach us. I realised that I use plastic and polymer disposable tableware while entertaining guests and while travelling only because it is more convenient. If I could have an alternative then I will surely use it in order to do my bit for protection of environment. Co-incidentlly I got an opportunity to review Green fare Tableware. It intrigued me and I immediately agreed to do the review as I wanted to use the products.

Most importantly Greenfare tableware is natural, bio-degradable and compostable. It is oven safe, freezer safe and microwave safe whereas other disposable products are not. I used the utensils in microwave and it did’nt lose its shape and remained sturdy too. Even when put in freezer it retains its natural form. Though they are priced a bit more than other disposable tableware, the difference is negligible since it’s use doesn’t hamper the environment.
These products are perfect alternative to plastics / polymer based products and I would recommend it to everyone.
