New Compostable Serviceware Guide Available

A new “Compostable Food Serviceware Buying Guide” aims to provide restaurants and other food service businesses alternatives to plastic take-out containers and serviceware, like cups, plates, bowls and utensils.

Created in collaboration with the Wellfleet Recycling Committee and Woods Hole Sea Grant and released by CARE for the Cape & Islands, the guide grew out of a series of Cape-wide summits aimed at decreasing the amount of waste, particularly plastic, in our environment.

The new Compostable Food Serviceware Buying Guide is available for free download on the CARE for the Cape and the Islands website at
