Our biodegradable plates made of sugarcane are incredibly adaptable! These disposable plates are a wonderful substitute for single-use plastic plates because they are manufactured from sugarcane pulp and other plant fibres. Use them to throw a totally plastic-free event at family get-togethers, school canteens, BBQs, and other events. These bagasse sugarcane plates come in a range of sizes and feature dividers to make separating meals for children or street food simple.
Because typical single-use serving options, like disposable plates, are frequently made from old-growth forests or from fossil fuels, the convenience of takeaway usually comes at the expense of the environment. After a 20-minute lifespan, conventional plastic bowls are usually disposed of in landfills, where they degrade over many centuries while releasing glasshouse gases. Made with materials like sugarcane pulp, which are renewable and ethically sourced, our selection of single-use plates provides a more environmentally responsible option to plastic plates. BioPak plates can either be recycled or composted commercially. Composting takeout packaging lowers greenhouse gas emissions, replenishes soil nutrients, and improves soil quality while being less expensive than landfilling waste.
BioPak use sugarcane pulp (bagasse) to produce a range of food service containers, plates and bowls. Sugarcane pulp is an abundant and rapidly renewable resource that will biodegrade in a compost environment, making it an ideal material for foodservice disposables. It is also a byproduct of the sugar refining industry, transforming an output that is currently considered waste into a valuable input for another process, providing significant environmental benefits. Using sugarcane pulp as a raw material, preserves forests. While 5 tonnes of wood are needed to produce 1 tonne of pulp for paper, only 1.5 tonnes of sugarcane pulp are needed to produce the same amount. A great choice for businesses trying to save money on their packaging costs. Biodegradable plates provide a simple yet effective solution for serving in-house meals at food markets or from food trucks.
