We offer a range of wooden cutlery sets in NZ made from wood or plant-based CPLA. These well-constructed, stylish utensils are fantastic alternatives to harmful petroleum-based plastic products. They can be sent directly to a landfill, where they will naturally decompose into plant matter, under the right conditions or to a commercial composting centre to be turned into compost. If you would like more information about our eco-friendly cutlery options in New Zealand, simply read on or contact the GreenChoice team at 0800 864 725 with any questions about our products.

Here at GreenChoice, we offer stylish, compostable and biodegradable disposable cutlery made from wood or plant-based CPLA. They're a fantastic option if you need high-quality single-use cutlery at affordable prices in New Zealand.
Wooden cutlery is sturdy, smooth and features an appealing natural aesthetic that makes it a great alternative to traditional disposable petroleum-based plastic cutlery.
CPLA, or Crystallised Poly Lactic Acid, is a natural, low-carbon alternative to petroleum-based plastic produced from renewable, plant-based resources such as corn or potato starch.
It's just as durable as standard plastic cutlery but is far better for the planet. CPLA utensils can handle high temperatures and solid food and will rapidly decompose after being used.
Plus, as the plants that produce the starch used in CPLA are so widely available, CPLA is one of the cheapest environmentally friendly plastic alternatives around.
Our eco-friendly wooden- and CPLA-based disposable cutlery products are a safe, responsible option for your consumers. They're the perfect solution to all your hospitality business' takeaway dining requirements.
Consumers are becoming increasingly conscious of the products they choose to purchase and the businesses from which they decide to buy them. By making the switch to our high-quality, biodegradable and compostable disposable cutlery products, you'll be able to capitalise on a market that puts the environment first while helping to make real change for our planet and collective future.
Biodegradable plastics and wood come from renewable, carbon-absorbing plants and don't emit toxic fumes when they're burnt, which is why they are considered 'carbon neutral'. They use less energy in their production process, making them even more sustainable than their traditional plastic counterparts.
Plastic cutlery can't be recycled and frequently ends up entering the ecosystem as litter or microplastics. It also has negative impacts on our health. The chemicals that leach out of plastic have been linked to cancers, disruption of the endocrine system, impaired immune function and even birth defects. Plastic waste is also commonly eaten by animals who mistake it for food, frequently killing them in the process.
Our fully biodegradable cutlery, on the other hand, will naturally break down into plant-based matter. Making the switch is an easy way to play your part in contributing to the preservation of New Zealand's beautiful, unique natural landscape.
Our wooden and plant-based disposable cutlery products also won't take up as much space in landfills as plastics do, as they break down at a much faster rate. If you run a food or hospitality business looking to go zero waste, making the switch to biodegradable cutlery is one of the best ways of achieving your goal. Plus, our cutlery products are an easy way to signal that your business cares about being eco-friendly, making them an excellent option for picnics, parties, and other events.
