Can I just say as a sustainability consultant it warms my heart to see this food based decor framed as compostable? Gorgeous stuff, I look forward to adding some of it to my home.

One compostable option that avoids using food crops are the leaf based plates from Verterra. They use what would otherwise be agricultural "waste," so no extra land is put to use to make these. And damn, they're sturdy! I like that they took the time to make them look nice, not just hippie practical. You can even wash and reuse them. I like watching the post drying warped plates fall back into shape when I put food on them. You can see more about them at www.verterra.com

Charging per bag has proven quite effective in Ireland. A small financial pain can quite an incentive to those not otherwise motivated to make change.
