9 inch Round Bagasse Plates -100% Biodegradable Plates (50 plates per package or case of 500)
Eco Products biodegradable and compostable plates are made from 100%
bagasse, which is the sugarcane fiber remaining after extraction of juice from sugarcane. Sugarcane is not only an annually renewable resource, but it can be turned into products normally made from plastic or paper. Using bagasse also avoids the pollution that would normally happen as a result of burning sugarcane pulp after juice extraction.
Our biodegradable plates are soak proof, have no plastic or wax lining, and can be used for both hot and cold items. Though these compostable plates are soak proof, hot items will cause the plates to "perspire" and some condensation will form at the bottom.
We now also offer "unbleached" bagasse plates - in natural light brown color. Bleaching is usually unnecessary, creates pollution, and is mostly done using chlorine or chlorine compounds, which release "dioxins" - persistent organic pollutants which do not break down easily and accumulate in the food stream. We are moving towards only carrying "unbleached" bagasse items as they become available to us.
Instead of using petroleum based plastics which create toxicity and environmental pollution, you can now use our compostable alternatives.
Please note that composting is required for biodegradation. These compostable plates will biodegrade within 30 days in a commercial composting facility, and within 90 days in a home composting system.
Made from Sugarcane fibers. Sugarcane plates and sugarcane bowls are better than paper.
