BORING (BUT USEFUL) STUFF
These 9" plates come in packs of 20. Bulk orders available by request.
WHAT DO THEY REPLACE?
Plastic plates! For example, many are made from thermoplastic polystyrene, a moldable plastic (petroleum) that's cheap to produce but also one of the more difficult plastics to recycle, if folks recycle. Many community recycling programs don't accept this type of plastic. And it's plastic! We can do better, read F**k Plastic.
Styrofoam plates! Can you believe stores still sell these? AND that we as consumers still buy them? There's not enough time here (watch for blog post) but it's bad stuff: benzene and styrene leach into your foods, it doesn't break down even though it's blown and strewn across the globe and it's highly toxic to make.
These plates take less energy to make and produce fewer carbon emissions than conventional disposable plates.

“When we are young, we think the whole world revolves around us - that is Ego Centric. As we grow, we connect with people who share our same religion or traditions - that is Ethno Centric. When we expand that connection to care about everyone on the planet - that is WORLD CENTRIC.”- Ken Wilber
