Why is Bagasse Most Suitable for tableware products?
Whether you’re planning an entirely eco-friendly event, or picking out a few sustainable options, tableware should be something you consider. If you choose only one thing to make sustainable at your event or wedding, let it be the tableware.
The main challenge that tableware poses is its disposal. Most of us don’t think twice about what happens to disposable plates and utensils after we’ve thrown them in the trash. Out of sight, out of mind. The fact of the matter is that parties and weddings generate a bunch of waste. The average wedding produces about 400-600 pounds of waste.
Styrofoam and plastic remain the cheapest and most readily available packaging materials, but there are biodegradable options available that won’t harm the environment and offer pre-life as well as post-life benefits.
Sugarcane products are 100% biodegradable and can break down in as quickly as 90 days. They are made from bagasse, the durable, fibrous part of the sugarcane plant. Bagasse is what remains after the sweet juice is extracted from sugarcane stalks and would otherwise be discarded. The bagasse becomes pulp, and after impurities are removed it is mixed with reagents for oil and water resistance. They are then molded in machines into nearly every shape and size of plates.
Effective alternative for plastics, that is a more direct way of utilizing renewable materials and is less technology intensive, is bagasse-based products. Bagasse is the industrial residue generated by milling of sugarcane. Bagasse can be transformed into plates, cups, bowls, spoons, takeaway containers and delivery containers.
