Plastic utensils are used for minutes but take hundreds of years to decompose. They are trash, not recyclable. Keep a reusable set on hand instead.
At gatherings, use washable utensils. (The BI Zero Waste Tableware Lending Library has hundreds of pieces of silverware, among other tableware, that you may borrow free of charge.  See info here.)


BuyNothing: Post them on the BuyNothing app. Neighbors will reuse your plastic utensils.
