I am always looking for ways to be more eco-friendly! It really is something important to me! I found out about a company called Vastly that makes paper products (toilet paper, tissues, paper towels, paper plates, napkins, etc.) in a very unique way: from wheat straw (a “waste product after wheat is harvested). No trees! Their products have a unique silky texture and are virtually lint-free with natural color. So the products are all completely compostable! But not only they make paper products, but they make fertilizer as a co-product of the process. Then, the fertilizer goes back into the very fields from which they get the straw to make the paper in the first place. I really think that it is pretty cool that no trees are used!
I received samples of the plates, napkins, tissue and toilet paper and they have been a hit in our house! My favorites are the plates and the napkins!
