In the meantime as summer nears my mailbox is filled with "designer" picnic tools, such as "cheerful melamine cups"

Melamine is a plastic that's not easily recyclable. No. I've found a couple of places that said they have recyclable melamine dishes, but that's just partially true. Melamine can be ground to pieces and re-moulded or mixed with other materials making a semi-biodegradable item, but it in itself still is not fully recyclable and definitely not biodegradable in a reasonable time.


Besides melamine is dangerous.


Even if you don't overheat those dishes, they are picnic dishes are they not? So they would stand in the sun. With acidic food in them. I for one am not happy to be a lab-rat here. Thanks.
