Plastic and styrofoam disposable plates are bad for the environment but what about paper plates? While not nearly as bad as plastic and styrofoam, due to the lack of oxygen in a landfill, paper plates can also take a long time to biodegrade and take up space. Some paper plates may even contain plastic or wax linings adding to the time it takes them to biodegrade.
These paper plates are made from sugarcane fiber and wheat straw and will biodegrade quickly in your home composter – keeping them out of the landfill! They are sturdy and able to handle hot and cold foods.
