With the 4th of July just around the corner, we bet you are gearing up for some weekend-special patriotic festivities. And, whether it is coming together for a casual backyard BBQ or watching the fireworks together, gatherings are a huge part of most Independence Day celebrations.

But, while you are celebrating our nation's independence, let's also be a bit kinder to the planet. Marked by juicy BBQ wings, dazzling fireworks, and late-night parties, if you are one to host a 4th of July gathering, don't worry, our compostable plates and bowls have got you all covered up.

Why Go All Compostable?

There's nothing more devastating than hosting a huge gathering and ending up doing the dishes later in your kitchen. And, while single-use plastic plates and bowls may serve the purpose, they are less appealing and the worst fate for our planet.

Our compostable products like palm leaf plates and bamboo paper napkins are plant-based and certified for all sustainability claims. That being said, these products are certified to go back to nature and form compost within just a few weeks post disposal.

Moreover, unlike single-use plastic plates, you would have to do fewer dishes every time you host a gathering. They are super convenient, highly durable, and pretty sturdy enough to complement all kinds of meals without getting all mushy.
