Be aware of biodegradable paper plates

what about taking biodegradable paper plates and a "real" set of silverware? the "biodegradable" silverware isn't very biodegradable, not accepted by commercial composters in my area because it takes too long to degrade, AND a friend who is writing her dissertation on hormonal disruptions caused by plastic says that the "compostable" plastic probably contains more than just the corn/potatoes/etc. They say it does probably contains plastic.
AND, the degradable plastic silverware often partially melts when in contact with hot food.
