Who would have thought tequila would play a role in reducing plastic waste? We take the upcycled agave waste from tequila production to make these plant-based forks, knives, and spoons that function like regular plastic while still being sustainable. Having been tested by the ASTM D 5511 method which simulates biologically active landfills, these products will degrade over 90% in the first 100 days, and fully in 1-5 years in both aerobic and anaerobic environments.
