ecological serving items

Bring biodegradable eco-friendly tableware into your life

Ecological serving items that do not pollute the environment

How do eco-friendly serving items differ from common disposable items?

Consumables made from sugarcane or other renewable raw materials, recycled materials and from plant materials produced in forests with certified responsible management, after serving their purpose, will not turn into toxic waste that will pollute nature. They will not contribute to global warming.

On the contrary, most ecological consumables are either biodegradable, or compostable in our home garden or we can throw them in the special brown organic waste recycling bins that we find in various cities of the country.

Why should you prefer Eco care ecological serving items?

Because by using these ecological items you are positively enhancing the protection of the environment, not its further pollution.

Consider drinking your daily take out coffee in a heat-resistant cane glass with a lid that once you empty it you can either add it to the compost bin, or leave it in the soil of your yard to biodegrade naturally.

Ecological serving items Eco care

How about offering sweets to the people you love served on biodegradable sugar cane plates and spoons, forks, knives made from renewable materials?!

After use, they can either end up in a composting plant or even if they end up in a landfill, they decompose faster and leave no toxic residue behind.

These questions should accompany every choice in our purchases and little by little, when we arrive at a store, this will be done automatically, without the need to have “boxes” with the “shoulds” in our minds anymore.

Litter in the seas – no more

Respect for the environment

About 70% of our planet is covered by oceans and marine debris is found almost everywhere. Respect for the environment is imperative.

Respect for the environment – sos

Marine litter, especially plastics, is a threat not only to the health of the seas and coasts, but also to the economy and our quality of life in general. Most marine litter is generated by activities carried out on land.

The eternal journey of plastics

Marine litter consists of manufactured or processed solid materials (eg plastic, glass, metal and wood), which end up in the marine environment one way or another.

About 10 million tons of waste end up in the seas and oceans of the planet every year. Plastics, and in particular plastic packaging waste such as soft drink bottles and single-use bags, are the main type of litter on beaches and the list goes on: broken fishing nets, ropes, cotton buds, cigarette butts, lighters and more.

Respect for the environment with coastal cleaning actions

Unlike organic materials, plastic does not “disappear” in nature. It accumulates in the environment and especially in the oceans. A single-use plastic bottle, for example, may take about 500 years to break down into tiny pieces. Read more about it in our corresponding article “How many years does it take for plastic to decompose” here.

Where does marine litter come from?

About 80% of the litter found in the marine environment comes from land-based activities. The source of marine litter is not necessarily limited to human activities along the coasts. Even if dumped on land, rivers and wind carry the waste out to sea. Fishing activities, shipping, offshore facilities such as oil wells and the sewage system contribute the rest.

Respect for the environment – Prolepsis

Although marine litter is only one of the pressures on the health of the marine environment, it is a growing concern. The accumulation and long preservation of plastics in nature further complicates the issue. Marine litter is a transboundary problem. Once they enter the sea, they no longer have an owner. This makes them difficult to manage.

The starting point for dealing with marine litter is prevention.

Coastal cleaning actions

The next step is to take action on land, before the waste reaches our seas. The EU has established policies and laws aimed at improving waste management, reducing packaging waste and increasing recycling rates, as well as improving waste water treatment and generally using resources more efficiently. There are also guidelines drawn up to help limit pollution from ships and ports.

These initiatives are a good way to raise awareness around the issue and ensure citizen participation (individual / social responsibility) in tackling the problem of marine litter.

Respect for the environment is a sign of culture!

Ecological decoration

When it comes to decoration, avoid all balloons and plastics that are more than sure to end up in the bin at the end of the celebration. Prefer more flowers. Put LED lights, which you can also use in other situations. Make decoration compositions with recyclable items and include your children in the “game”. With imagination you can do wonders.

Eco-sign food options

“As for food, what options do I have?” Here things are simpler and clearer. Prefer foods with locally produced ingredients, fresh seasonal items, organic products as much as possible, meat as little as possible. These are the options for a party with a small ecological footprint.

In the event that there are significant amounts of food left over and you don’t want or can’t consume them in the next few days, call BORUME, the organization that networks people who have food with agencies and institutions that request food. They will let you know where the leftover food can go so that it can be used to feed people in real need.

Disposable plates – cups

Eco care disposable sugarcane biodegradable items are the ideal solution for your celebration party.

compostable products

Responsible choices with respect for the environment

Compostable products – what are they?

Compostable products are converted into organic matter, compost.

The word compost comes from the English word compost, which in turn comes from the Latin word compositus and the verb componere (com + ponere = together + place). At the end of the 14th century, the word composte appeared in the French language in the sense of a mixture of leaves, manure and other materials for fertilizing the earth. The word compost, as we know it today as a concept, appears in 1580 in England.

Compost – the natural fertilizer

Compost is natural fertilizer produced from the decomposition of organic materials, such as leaves, branches, food scraps (fruits, vegetables, etc.). Since it has good quality characteristics it can be used for any kind of cultivation.

The process of making compost from organic waste has been translated into Greek as composting and its products as compostable products.

Compost – The precious natural fertilizer

Composting – Biodegradation

Composting is essentially enhanced biodegradation, done under controlled conditions. Bacteria, fungi and other microbes are the workers of composting. They are also assisted by other larger organizations. During composting these microbes produce C02, heat and water as they break down the organic materials.

The final material that results is fertilizer (the compost) contains valuable nutrients while simultaneously acting as a soil conditioner. This is the significant difference between composting and biodegradation, that composting creates compost (fertilizer), while biodegradation simply decomposes the product into C02, water and biomass.

Learn more about the composting process by reading the corresponding article on our blog.

Eco care compostable products

Eco care products are compostable based on European Standard EN 13432. They are absolutely friendly to the environment and support a wide range of daily needs. They respect both nature and man.

Their correct use and disposal in conditions foreseen by their design allows the completion of their life cycle without negative consequences for the environment.

Eco-friendly baby shower party

Biodegradable eco-friendly baby shower party items

We’ve seen it in movies, we’ve heard about it from our friends abroad, and maybe someone we know has already done it. A baby shower may not be our tradition, but it is a delightful way to celebrate such happy news, the arrival of a baby. And why not do it ecologically, using biodegradable ecological items?!

Whether you are organizing the baby shower party yourself or the mother-to-be, or a direct relative (mother, sister), a friend or the maid of honor, we have gathered the steps to organize your party successfully, without problems and above all ecologically.

When to Have a Baby Shower

Usually the party is held 6-8 weeks before the birth. So the wannabe mom is in a good place with her pregnancy and will be able to enjoy the party. If you have taken on the role of hostess yourself, start with the organization by finding out the exact date that serves the mother. In any case, you should give yourself at least a month to be comfortable and efficient.

How many people to invite

Determine the number of guests in consultation with the honoree. Even if it’s a surprise party, find out the mother-to-be’s preferences. Start phone calls, invitations and e-mails.

Where to

If your guest list is small, you can have the party at home. So your party will have a more intimate character.

Tip: Stock up on the necessary biodegradable eco-friendly items you will need in advance. This, as an idea, frees up your hands as you will avoid cleaning up afterwards (washing dishes, etc.). Finally, a great idea for the warmer months is to have the party in a beautiful outdoor place like a park or near the sea and turn it into a picnic. In this case it would be good to have provided for the amount of food and drinks and of course keep in mind the comfort of the attendees.

Baby shower party with an ecological character

Shower party theme and supplies

Usually baby showers are held in the afternoon, so the menu has prevailed to be light snacks and sweets along with tea, coffee or other refreshing drinks. So what’s better than preparing a perfect buffet with cold sandwiches, finger food and juices or soft drinks? Collect all necessary biodegradable ecological items (plates, cups, containers, straws, knives, forks, spoons etc.) at least one week before the party. As for the decoration, let your imagination and creativity run free and put together an incredible buffet with beautiful flowers and lights.

Souvenirs from the baby shower

And of course don’t skip this step! Gifts for guests are important. They show your appreciation for their presence at your party and are also a nice souvenir from the occasion. Choose care gifts such as scented soaps, bath salts or chocolates.

Finally, we recommend relaxing music and of course, don’t forget to take lots of souvenir photos.

Eco care biodegradable ecological items

Human life without nature has no possibility of continuity, but even more so, that the quality of human life is determined by the quality of nature. On this basis, we have created its own comprehensive line of biodegradable eco-friendly disposables (from sugarcane). They decompose without leaving a trace of environmental contamination. Products that can be “regenerated” contributing to the reduction of C02 emissions.

With a little preparation and always without stress, your baby shower party will be a success and will be a sweet memory for everyone.
