Our Sugarcane range, made from bagasse (a byproduct of sugarcane processing), offers several benefits over traditional disposable plates made from materials like plastic or paper. Here are a few reasons why sugarcane is a superior natural material:
It’s Biodegradable and Compostable
Sugarcane plates are biodegradable and compostable, breaking down naturally within a few months in composting conditions. This reduces the environmental impact associated with waste disposal compared to non-biodegradable materials like plastic.
Responsible, Sustainable and Renewable
Sugarcane is a renewable resource that grows quickly and can be harvested multiple times a year. Using bagasse, a byproduct of sugarcane processing, to make plates helps reduce waste and promotes the efficient use of resources.
Sugarcane plates are made without the use of harmful chemicals or toxins. This makes them a safer option for serving food compared to some disposable plates made from synthetic materials.
Microwave and freezer safe
Sugarcane plates are safe for use in microwaves and freezers, making them versatile for serving and storing food.
Sturdy and leak-resistant
Sugarcane plates are strong and durable, suitable for serving a variety of foods, including hot, cold, wet, or dry dishes. They are also leak-resistant, making them useful for serving saucy or liquid-heavy dishes.
Reduced Carbon Footprint
Using biodegradable and compostable sugarcane plates instead of disposable plastic or Styrofoam plates helps reduce the carbon footprint associated with the production, transportation, and disposal of single-use items.
Supports circular economy
By using a byproduct of sugarcane processing (bagasse) to produce plates, the production process supports a circular economy and helps minimize waste.
Sugarcane plates come in various shapes and sizes, making them suitable for different types of dishes and occasions.
It’s a Better Alternative to Petroleum-Based Products
Sugarcane plates are a better alternative to petroleum-based disposable products, such as plastic or Styrofoam, which are non-renewable and can take centuries to decompose.
By choosing sugarcane plates over traditional disposable options, you contribute to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly approach to single-use items.
