VerTerra Dinnerware Review & 5 Giveaways -- ENDED

Giveaway Winners are: #37, #160, #325, #341, and #349 We host a lot of playdates at home. When we have playdates at home, I would use regular dishes to serve our guests (including the kids) and just wash the dishes afterwards. I found that by using regular dishes and utensils, we not only save a lot of money we also reduce the waste we create. However, it is much harder when we get together with our friends at the park. I am already carrying so much stuff to go to the park (food, toys and 2 kids), I simply can not imagine carrying a bunch of plates and utensils with me for the pot luck lunches we have with our friends also. I recently discovered that a great alternative is VerTerra Dinnerware. Made from fallen leaves, these plates are very durable and will compost naturally in 2 months (much faster than paper plates).
Another reason why they are better than paper plates: they are microwave-safe up to 2 minutes on high and oven-safe for up to 45 minutes at 350 degrees. I kid you not! I love the rustic look of these plates and I think they would be wonderful to use even when we have company over for dinner.

We love the VerTerra Dinnerware plates and we think you will too. To buy your own VerTerra Dinnerware, please visit the company website.

Many thanks to VerTerra Dinnerware. The company has generously offered 8-pack of the dinnerware for five winners (US residents only please).

After collecting fallen leaves that would normally be burned, we apply steam, heat and pressure to transform the leaves into durable products that will naturally compost in 2 months.

VerTerra products are made in South Asia, where our employees receive fair wages in safe working conditions and are provided access to health care.

Please go to VerTerra Dinnerware and then come back to tell me something you have learned about the company or its product


Their products act as a natural insulator to keep hot items hot and cold items cold.
