I was just flipping through Rachel Ray's magazine "Every Day" & stumbled across these really interesting paper plates. Best part-they aren't paper! These are actually made of potatoes, corn & limestone. Just like the heavy-duty paper we all love, these plates & bowls are microwave safe, cut-resistant, soak-proof & strong enough for a heavy load. The best feature is that they are biodegradable and will not pile up in landfills. Personally I had gotten where I was trying to avoid buying &/or using paper plates because I felt bad. I checked out the EarthShell website (click the above title to go straight there) and used their handy store locating page. Next time I am in Destin I'll be sure to stop in Target for a few of these. Happy hunting!
