The battle against plastic has really begun. Disposable plastic items such as cutlery, plates and straws have been banned since 3 July. Gradually, in the coming years, more and more measures will be taken against the use of materials that are harmful to the environment. Are you looking for a sustainable choice in crockery or replacement material for your range? We have listed our various types of responsible tableware for you.
The use of bamboo as a sustainable raw material has recently increased in popularity. Why is that? It grows extremely fast, does not need much water to grow, absorbs a lot of CO2 and is the perfect replacement for plastic.
All our sustainable and biodegradable tableware (including our bamboo straws) are produced from 100% natural material, are completely compostable and therefore safe to use.
Our bamboo tea sets are made from pure bamboo and are therefore safe and durable. The stainless steel brush that comes with the straws allows you to clean them, making them easy to take along for a second or third time to that picnic in the park, for example!
Palm leaf plates
The eco-friendly palm leaf plates are a treat to eat from because of their unique look. The disposable plates are made from the fallen leaves of the Arecapalm. These leaves fall several times a year and then grow back on their own. The palm leaf plates are useful for both cold and hot dishes. And after the meal, they can just go with the vegetable fruit and garden waste because they are 100% organic and compostable.
Paper cups, straws and napkins
The paper cups, straws, napkins, placemats and tablecloths from our Secrets du Potager collection are also completely biodegradable and produced from a natural material. To make the cups suitable for hot drinks such as coffee and tea, there is a layer of (100% natural) PLA on the cardboard, but they remain compostable! The napkins, placemats and tablecloths are even made of chlorine-free FSC® certified paper and are printed with a super cute fern print of water-based ink.
