Many business owners are turning to eco-friendly disposable plates, because they're conscious about how much plastic and other waste is ending up in landfill and our oceans every day. Businesses are calling out for essential products to be made from biodegradable and sustainable materials. While the materials are a bit more expensive than their plastic counterparts, you can offset some of the cost by buying wholesale items in bulk. If your business made the switch to eco-friendly disposable plates, cups, and cutlery, this small step will help play a bigger part in the future of our planet.
The Benefits of Using Eco-Friendly Plates
When you use eco-friendly plates that are biodegradable and compostable, your plates and packaging can conveniently be disposed of in the compost with your other food waste. A good idea before you put them in the compost, is to make sure these eco-friendly plates don’t have any food left on them, as this could disturb the ecosystem in your compost. They just need a bit of a rinse and they're good to go.
