Organic and biodegradable, bamboo plates are a wonderful alternative to the more commonly used plastic or paper disposables. The bamboo plates have a pleasant tan color, and they are sturdy enough to hold food. They would go well with a picnic or barbecue as well as an indoor party. Apart from the unique look of the disposable bamboo plates, they are better for you and the environment as they:
- Do not contain any bleaches or dyes
- Are entirely made of natural, organically grown bamboo
- Biodegrade within 4-6 months
Disposable bamboo plates are better for the environment. Paper plates deplete the Earth's natural resource of trees, and plastic plates can take hundreds of years to biodegrade! Bamboo plates will cause less harm to the environment than other disposable plates.
What is bamboo?
Bamboo is a tall green plant that grows in stalks. It has been popularized by panda bears as it is a big part of their diet. Bamboo is a renewable resource and of all the plants in the world it grows the fastest. Within 24 hours a bamboo plant can grow about 47 inches longer. Compared to trees which can take 50 years to harvest, bamboo can be harvested after 7 years and they do not need to be replanted to regenerate.
Bamboo is a fabulous choice for building material because it is strong, sturdy and easily grown. Apart from making plates, bamboo can be fashioned into a number of other ecologically friendly and useful items including chopsticks, paper, flooring, baskets, and even umbrellas! Bamboo is a pretty useful plant and resource.
Bamboo helps the environment just by being there. It consumes nitrogen, and as a result of this, bamboo helps decrease the negative consequences of polluted water that is put into the environment due to livestock farming or sewage treatment. Bamboo helps regulate the atmosphere's oxygen and carbon dioxide balance as it puts out about 30% more oxygen than trees do and takes in two thirds more carbon dioxide than any other plant.
Bamboo is a beautiful plant that helps both the planet and humans. The disposable bamboo plates are a natural, charming, and healthy option to go for when you are looking for disposable dishware. They will be appreciated by guests and family for their interesting appearance and positive contribution to the environment, as they will not harm the planet like other disposables.
