WHAT DO THEY REPLACE? 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.
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.

“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
