Unlike other disposables, these bamboo plates are tres chic
Not only are they prettier than plastic or syrofoam plates, they're better for the environment too.
According to bio-compostable company World Centric:
Plastic and Styrofoam… stay in the environment for hundred to thousands of years and leach toxic substances into the groundwater. Approximately 40 billion plastic utensils are used every year in the USA alone, together with billions of Styrofoam and plastic cups, plates etc. Biodegradable products can, therefore, reduce landfill mass by as much as 30%.
And they're cute!!! They're also perfect for this down-home, handmade, BBQ wedding, but they'd be equally at home at a more modern organic wedding.
