The holidays are the perfect moment to add a little extra oomph, and nothing provides that rich hit quite like On the Bend’s Maple Butter.

If there’s a crowd about to descend on your humble abode, a few helpful shortcuts are in order, and reducing the dishes ordeal with the 12-person compostable party pack from Greenlid is an easy way to lighten your load. Once guests leave, you’ll be thanking the 108-piece set of forks, knives, napkins, plates, bowls, cups and straws that will decompose without a trace.
When aiming to be the host with the most, Attitude’s biodegradable baby diapers are the extra inclusion in your bathroom that parental friends and family will be happy to have on-hand.
