For stocking your kitchen at the office, we highly recommend using glassware, china and silverware over anything disposable. It's greener and much more elegant. Seriously, we're not in preschool. It's time to graduate from styrofoam!

That said, if you're in a bind and need a disposable option, Excellent Packaging & Supply is a supplier of BagasseWare, a sugarcane-based Styrofoam substitute that can withstand both freezer and microwave, and SpudWare, utensils made from corn and potato starch that can tolerate boiling water. Both are as tough and durable as traditional products but, unlike petroleum-derived plastics, will break down into their natural components within months in composting facilities.
