VerTerra’s disposable tableware is a great alternative to plastic and paper plates. It is made from fallen palm leaves and water only and biodegrades naturally within two months.

These are very nice. My uncle used to grow palm trees for a living. Getting rid of the old palms was always a bother... I wish he had thought of this! http://davidikus.blogspot.com/

These are beautiful. I want one that's going to last more than 2 months, a plastic one maybe?

They can last more than two months!! They will biodegrade in two months if you put them in soil.

When I write biodegrades in two months I mean it will biodegrade in two months if you bury it. The best plate that can be reused for more than two months is a ceramic plate, wood plate or metal plate.
