Preserves Tableware from Green Ostrich Review and Giveaway

I’ve long been a fan of Preserve toothbrushes. I started buying them for my family about 2 years ago. So, Green Ostrich, an eco-friendly online store, gave me the opportunity to test and review a pack of Preserves Tableware, I was delighted to give them a try. 

In the box: The item I received is called the Preserve Recycled Plastic Apple Green Tableware Pack. It contains 4 cups (16 oz), 4 plates (9.5 in), and 4 bowls (16oz).

First impression: This is an attractive eco-friendly tableware pack in a fun and friendly green color. The light weight pack is perfect to use out on a picnic, during a birthday party, at girls scout meetings, family reunion and so on.  The set, made in the USA with 100% recycled plastic, is very sturdy. It will not break or bend with a heavy plate of food. The plastic is also BPA free and melamine free. The whole set is dishwasher safe.

The bowls and plates have nice grip-lip  I really like. It make the dishes  a lot easier to hold when food on the plate is hot hot hot! The grip-lip is also a great feature to have for kids (kids hands are always slippery) or for anyone that might have arthritis or other hand ailments.

The fact that the dishes are textured to conceal knife marks is another great feature, but it only works if you use plastic knives. Sharp knife scratches will show through the texture. I made sure to find out :).

What I love! I can return the tableware when it becomes too old or too worn. Preserve recycles them again. If you don’t know how old your tableware is  the date of manufacture is printed on the bottom of the dishes.
