I could be wrong, but I thought they were already using plant based "plastic" ware. I wouldn't eat the fork, though.

I ate at Busch Gardens the other day and I think the flatware was that compostable corn based stuff.

I ate at SW Orlando the other day and didn't notice anything at all about the plastic fork and knife.

In other eco news, I drank from a paper straw in California recently and it was terrible. Every time I put it in my mouth I wondered if it was going to go limp and pulpy on me... uuuuhhh.... I may come back and edit that....

Well, if it goes limp (and pulpy?), then you're doing it wrong.

I thought Willy Wonka pioneered this back in the 70's?
