Product Description

Disposable, compostable and biodegradable bowls made from 100-percent bagasse, the sugarcane fiber that remains after extracting the juice from the sugarcane. Sugarcane is not only a readily renewable resource, but the sugarcane fiber can be turned into products normally made from plastic and paper and prevents the pollution from the normal burning of sugarcane waste after juice extraction. Our biodegradable bowls are soak proof, have no plastic or wax lining, and can be used for both hot and cold items. Please note, that though these compostable bowls are soak proof, hot items will cause the bowls to "perspire" and some condensation will form at the bottom of the bowls. A far superior alternative to styrofoam & plastic (non-biodegradable, petroleum derived, pollutant) and as well as paper bowls made from cutting down trees. We now offer "unbleached" bagasse bowls - in natural light brown color. Bleaching is usually unnecessary, creates pollution, and is mostly done using chlorine or chlorine compounds, which release "dioxins" - persistent organic pollutants which do not break down easily and accumulate in the food stream. We are slowly moving towards only carrying "unbleached" bagasse items as they become available to us. Please note, composting is required for biodegradation and these compostable plates will biodegrade within 30 days in a commercial composting facility, and within 90 days in a home composting system.

These were on super clearance on amazon, so I ordered some to try them out. I was shocked at how thin they are. They're almost as thin as 2 of those cheapo paper plates that always stick together. Far thinner than styrofoam or those natural potato-based plates and bowls.

They work well for about 15 minutes or so with liquids or hot foods, but then they start to get soggy. If you're going to be done in 15 minutes they'll work well, but if you have a bowl soup or something and then set it down and forget about it, you might come back to a mess of soup all over the table/floor.

I'd buy them again at the insanely cheap price I paid, since they were practically free, but the standard retail price is obscenely high.

Soaks up whatever liquid you put in it, and transfers it to whatever the bowl happens to be placed on. Would be fine for dry foods, but a poor choice for soups.

Ok price, ok bowl. My problem with it is that the page says soak proof but the bowl does not say soak proof anywhere. So why do they think it's soak proof. I don't really want to waste a bowl or make a mess to test it. Either way even if it is soak resistant they shouldn't claim that if the company who made it doesn't even advertise it on the bowls. The materila is rough not smooth just an fyi

We purchased the plates and bowls and are impressed with the sturdy hold, smells fresh and nice - BUT they are not meant for soup or chili as intended because they soak through eventually - or greasy spot. BUT we are NOT disappointed because we will use them for the salad which will work perfectly! No regrets!
