Disposable Bamboo plates are made from organically grown bamboo which is annually renewable; that means you can stock up on as many bamboo disposable plates and bamboo cutlery sets as you like without having a detrimental effect on the environment.
Our high quality bamboo products are made by peeling the bamboo directly from the bamboo culm, or stem. Three sheets of bamboo are then made into a single layer using heat, pressure and a little food-grade, water-based adhesive. No chemicals or dyes are used in the process and the full range is certified by IMO Switzerland annually. It is also USDA certified 100% biobased and compost approved.
Sturdy and elegant, this bamboo tableware can be used all year round for weddings, picnics, outdoor parties, gala events and for home entertaining.
What’s more, once you are done using the plates and such you can pop them on your home compost heap and rest assured that they will naturally break down over a short period of 4-6 months.
Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants in the world and it has impressive strength qualities - a truly sustainable, beautiful and versatile raw material transformed into stylish disposable tableware.
How to Care for Bamboo tableware:
"More and more people are looking to organic and eco-friendly products. Notably, bamboo tableware and plates have become a popular alternative to commonly used synthetic materials.
Though bamboo is naturally tough and resistant to mould and other microbes, it still requires regular cleaning to keep it in good condition.
Bamboo bowls and tableware have to be hand washed in soapy water; putting them in a dishwasher can actually warp and distort the wood which can cause cracks.
It is also worth noting that you should not use bamboo bowls in the microwave as this can also damage them. Be sure to store them in a cool dry place.
Finally, apply a little food-grade mineral oil to help keep the wood smooth and luminous. This need only be done a few times a year when the bowls appear dry or rough. You should also apply the oil to your bamboo tableware should they seem discoloured as this can indicate dryness."
