Check out these sustainable, environmentally responsible disposable plates! World Centric makes these along with bowls and utensils from annually renewable plants like sugar cane fiber, corn and wheat straw (they are gluten free, too!).
According to a 15-page certification manifesto (these people mean business!), their products biodegrade in a commercial compost system and product nutrient-rich soil in 3-6 months and use less energy to produce. We also like that the company has a ZERO carbon footprint an donates 25% of profits to grass roots social and environmental orgs. IM-pressive.
We have them in all stores just in time for July 4 picnics!
