These fully biodegradable and compostable plates are made from bagasse which is the fibrous waste product left over after sugar has been squeezed from the cane stalks. This makes it more environmentally friendly than paper as there is no need to fell trees and the crops grow back more quickly than trees. They also take less energy to make than plastic and of course will biodegrade much faster leaving no impact on our environment. Once your event has finished, if you have access to a composting area, you can compost them along with any food waste. If you don't have access to a composting area, they can be thrown away as normal waste (using our ecological sacks) where they will eventually biodegrade.
