Earthen Disposable Dinnerware

Made of naturally tan-coloured pressed palm leaves, Earthen Disposable Dinnerware plates look straight off the set of Gilligan’s Island. Not only do they add style to a picnic, they’re biodegradable, unbleached, and compostable, besides being strong. Malaspina University – College business-school grad Alex Casewa came up with the idea for a class project. Originally from India, he knew that fallen palm leaves were going to waste, and put the resource to good use with these plates. You can find them at MarketPlace IGA stores, where 12 plates measuring 22 centimeters in diameter go for $6.99.
