Are you about to throw a Summer soiree, (sorry to Max for the weird word) bash, or picnic? Well as anyone who has ever thrown one, we want the clean up to be easy and quick, but we also want to be green. So what to do?
Well, you can try out the biodegradable dishes from VerTerra. The one-time use bowls, plates, and platters are eco friendly, as they are made from renewable resources, and also are set to decompose in about 2 months. Plus they support local workers in Asia.
VerTerra’s dishes are 100 percent renewable and made entirely from compostable plant matter and water, with none of the chemicals, waxes or dyes found in disposable paper and plastic options. VerTerra products are made in South Asia, where it ensures that employees have fair wages, safe working conditions and access to healthcare. After collecting the fallen leaves, the company applies steam, heat and pressure to transform them into products that are durable and versatile, and can be used in the microwave, oven or fridge. They biodegrade naturally in two months. Sold in packs of 10 or 12, VerTerra’s dishes are priced at roughly USD 1 per dish.
