Happy Valentine's Day! Doesn't this red velvet cupcake look adorable all dressed up for the celebration?

STRUCTUREbags Green Find Friday

It does, indeed. But is not the star of the show here. (Though "Little" may disagree...)

This week's green find was a surprise during a little treat date "Little" and I had. Do you see that fork there? It is no regular disposable fork.

It's a compostable fork made by Ingeo. What makes this little guy different? It's made from a renewable source - corn - rather than petroleum oils. Cool.

Buying in small quantities makes them fairly expensive at $0.24 each, but those in the food service biz can make an eco-choice at on $0.05 each when buying in bulk. Not too shabby.

So take a look next time you casual dine. Maybe even drop a note in the suggestion box.

Happy (green) Valentine's Day!
