Compostable & Renewable: Susty Party
For party supplies, there’s a company out in Brooklyn, NY who offer stylish plates, cups and napkins. A plus, they are made in the USA! I first heard of Susty Party when I received an email from their publicist.. Later that night, I turned on Shark Tank and the two co-owners Emily Doubilet and Jessica Holseywere on, trying to get a deal. They didn’t get a deal but I liked their concept.
According to their website, “The founders have been included in Forbes “30 Under 30” list in the food and wine category, and were also awarded the Yoshiyama Young Entrepreneur Award by the Hitachi Foundation for their innovative approach to environmental sustainability and commitment to creating jobs for the visually impaired.”
I am using their cups, napkins and plates to use for my daughter’s “Frozen” birthday party this coming weekend!
