Eco Occasions Sugarcane plates are made from 100% natural sugarcane fiber. Sugarcane fiber (also known as Bagasse) is the dry pulpy residue left after crushing sugarcane stalks and extracting the juice from cane sugar. Sugarcane pulp is an excellent alternative to wood. While paper is produced from pulping wood from trees, Bagasse is the reclaimed by-product from the huge sugarcane industry. Re-production using bagasse is more environmentally friendly than Styrofoam or even recycled paper to produce, requiring less water and less energy. The fibrous nature of bagasse make it easy to mold into many shapes and sizes. It is compostable, in both home and industrial settings and will 100% biodegrade within 90 days. When sugarcane products degrade, they provide natural ingredients back to the environment since they are made from natural materials. Being made from reclaimed and renewable resources, this tableware is the ultimate sustainable product. It is food safe and non-toxic, oil & heat resistant up to 100⁰C, leak proof, microwavable, freezer safe.
