Where can I find good quality disposable knifes, forks etc in Basel?

Hello there,

I apologize in advance for being so poor to the environment, I promise I recycle and am very conscious of being kind to it on a daily basis - except for this weekend when I am throwing a large Thanksgiving party for 20+ people.

I have been to Migros/Coop, and well, the stuff they have there - there is no hope that it will cut even the moistest of turkeys on their plates.

Is there a party type place that sells good quality disposable plasticware? Or does anyone know of a place where there are the environmentally friendly ones? I've had those at events here and that would actually be ideal.

Thanks!

My Dishwasher. After the use I dispose them in the dishwasher.

Your local Brocki might have affordable silver ware. Or your neighbors my have some spare ones (rent the Air BnB apartment )

Some "green" disposable ones:

Ikea does sets of six place settings for CHF 9.95 and you can use them again, and again, and again.

I shouldn't think you'd find good quality disposable ones cheaper, to be honest.

From a different angle, could you go to a restaurant nearby and ask them if you could borrow 20 sets? Or ask at a couple of restaurants for 5 or 10 sets each time? Wash them and take them back when you're finished along with a big box of chocolates or couple of bottles of something fizzy?

Some restaurants rent out tableware for such occasions so you might strike lucky.

I found a place that had wonderful biodegradable cutlery and plates made from recycled leaves - worked beautifully.

You can also rent from professional companies that have all you need. Here is one example (sorry my DE is not great so you will have to read the fine print).
