helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

What's better than being budget-savvy? Being budget-savvy and eco-friendly! πŸ™‚ I came across a company called Ecoware Biodegradables that sells these adorable biodegradable wooden utensils (which are completely biodegradable and are made of birch wood) in bulk. They sell them in cases of 1000 for $56.99 which includes shipping. For the wedding I only need about 150-200 of each I think. But they are a great alternative to plasticware as they are biodegradable. At that bulk price it's only .05-ish cents per utensil! I got quoted .35 cents a piece for real silverware from most rental companies. If you were to get a fork, spoon, and knife for 200 people at .35 cents each that's $157.50 plus tax! Seriously, people!? I can get 1000 of each for a few dollars more with Ecoware!

I got them to send me a sample to test out the quality and sturdiness, and it passed the test on chicken, italian sausage, and even on soggy sides like Mac&Cheese. So it's a GO! πŸ™‚ They shipped out yesterday so hopefully I will have them soon! I plan on wrapping some of my scrap paper from my invites around them with bakers twine or something similar. Isn't it fun to be chic and earth-friendly? πŸ™‚ They don't have a way to order directly from the site, but there is contact info there for the sales department and they were super friendly and easy to work with. I definitely recommend Ecoware Biodegradables to anyone looking for a cheap alternative to renting real silverware and still wanting to be eco-friendly!

Look at the prettiness that is created with these adorable utensils:
