SelfEco recently revealed a new line of disposable, eco-friendly dishes called Compostable without Compromise. The line features more than 20 products with 12 separate designs that will allow event planners to go green in style.

The bioplastic products include a variety of drinkware, catering ware and utensils, which can be used for a range of different events.

“SelfEco has created a line of upscale, attractive and durable disposable service ware that fits great into many event and party themes,” says Connie Weigel, director of purchasing for Kelber Catering, “It is all compostable and perfectly supports our sustainable hospitality practices.”

Adding design and quality to disposable dishware, SelfEco believes event planners shouldn’t sacrifice style or durability in order to be eco-friendly. “Compostable products should be superior to the non-recyclable, disposable products they replace. You should not have to make sacrifices to use them. You should feel proud and excited to use them,” says Danny Mishek, president of SelfEco. “We have transformed compostable party and catering ware from products customers are forced to use to products they want to use because of their quality and appeal.”

The latest Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) Business Travel Recovery Poll revealed that business travel is surging forward and international travel is returning alongside the challenges of rising fuel prices, inflation, supply chain disruption, and the war in Ukraine. In addition, corporate travel policies are undergoing a revamp, and a large majority of employees indicate they are willing to travel for business. 

 

The hospitality and meetings and events industries are known for their generosity. Even after a couple of tough years courtesy of the COVID-19 pandemic, helping others has remained a priority. Here are a few examples from around the country.
