06/13/2011 makes Eco-Friendly Entertaining Easy with Party Green Wheat Straw Party Plates

Online PR News – 13-June-2011 – –, an online supplier of quality, sustainable foodservice supply and to-go packaging announced today the availability of Party Green biodegradable party plates with built-in cup holders. The tree-friendly plates made from wheat straw offer a sound alternative for eco-friendly consumers who want to entertain while remaining conscious of the impact of paper and plastic products on the planet.

“There’s an increasing demand for environmentally-friendly products ideal for eco-conscious events,” said Rosetta Mitchell, chief executive officer of “The summer season is popular for weddings, picnics, reunions, festivals and other events, and Party Green’s compostable plates support maximum fun, with minimum impact on the planet.”

Designed with people and parties in mind, Party Green’s biodegradable plates are ideal for party planners and hosts committed to a safer, less toxic environment. The plates are made from wheat straw, an annually renewable resource, and are recyclable, home compostable and commercially compostable.

Most biodegradable plates are made from sugarcane bagasse, which are only biodegradable in commercial compost systems and contaminate the paper recycling system. Alternately, Party Green’s eco-friendly partyware can be tossed in the paper-recycling stream, making it a more convenient option when compared to sugarcane fiber plates.

Strong and durable, Party Green plates are ideal for many occasions like barbecues, steak dinners, reunions, wine tastings, festivals, networking, tailgating and other indoor and outdoor events. Additionally, living up to the company’s tagline, “One Hand Free,” the plates with drink holder can accommodate a glass of wine, or other beverage of choice.

Party Green biodegradable party plates are available in two sizes, 10.25-inch and 8.25-inch. The plates are natural colored and sold by the case of 500. Both sizes accommodate most nine-ounce to 20-ounce cups and some wine glasses with a base of 2.75 inches or less. The larger size is ideal for lunch and dinner events, while the cocktail plates are well suited for appetizers and hors d'oeuvres.

“All of the products that we carry embody our commitment to environmental advocacy and awareness,” said Mitchell. “We’re delighted to carry Party Green’s products in an ongoing effort to equip and empower food service operators and consumers to take the necessary steps toward greening our nation’s restaurants and households.”
