Plant-Based & Compostable Plates: For Happy Meals & A Greener Planet

If you are like us, we bet mealtimes are your favorite. While we all look forward to a hearty breakfast, healthy lunches and super delicious dinner, doing the dishes later can often be stressful, especially if you have company over.

But what if there's a way to avoid doing the dishes later and still not rely on single-use plastic plates? Yes, we're talking about compostable plates. And they are definitely worth the hype. For starters, they are made from plants. This implies that all plates available at EcoSoul are purely plant-based and contain absolutely no plastic. These plates are also tree-free, so you won't be contributing to deforestation either.

\And, besides them being planet-safe, they offer convenience too. Because they are meant for single-use purposes, they are great to use at all your gatherings. Once you are done with them, you can simply dispose of them in your compost bin, where they will break into tiny pieces, forming compost. This compost can then be mixed into the soil, to increase the water retention levels and improve the nutrient value of the soil.

So, here's exactly what you need to know about our plant-based and sustainable plates. Read on to explore why you should choose plant-based plates over single-use plastics and some reasons why you should switch today.

Choosing Plant-Based Over Plastics: Compostable Plates

If you have ever thought about going for eco-friendly plates, we bet you must have come across plates made out of palm leaves or bagasse. Choosing plant-based over plastics can offer a wide variety of benefits. To start off with, our range of compostable plates is plant-based. They are either made from naturally fallen Areca palm or upcycled sugarcane bagasse. The point is, unlike single-use plastic plates, which are made by exhausting non-renewable resources, these plants are made from nature's fastest replenishing resources. Plus, they are compostable. In fact, all our palm leaf plates and sugarcane bagasse plates are certified for all their back-to-nature claims. In simpler words, these compostable plates are certified to go back into nature within a couple of days post disposal.

Moreover, these plates come with no chemical nasties. So, more ingesting tiny bits of plastics or super toxic chemicals during your meals!

Why Choose Plant-Based? 7 Reasṣons to Switch to Compostable Plates

Below are some of the reasons why our compostable plates are a better and sustainable alternative to single-use plastic plates:

No Plastic, No Trees

We get it; a better option for single-use plastic plates is usually paper plates. But, honestly, they are not a great pick either. In fact, did you know that the production of paper-based products results in over 15% of global deforestation? Moreover, out of all the plastic products worldwide, 50% is single-use plastic. The point is that the single-use nature of these plastic plates results in highly devastating environmental effects. However, with our palm leaf or bagasse plates, you can choose to make a greener impact.

No Chemical Nasties

Unlike single-use plastic plates, which are slathered with chemicals, our compostable plates are entirely chemical—or toxin-free. They are made from plants and do not contain any substance that can contaminate your food.

A Back-to-Nature Promise

Have you ever wondered, where exactly plastic ends up? Well, plastic products like single-use plates and other disposable utensils either end up in our oceans or landfills. Either way, they end up contaminating our ecosystem. And, while everything in our ecosystem biodegrades at some point, plastic plates simply take a very long time to break down. And, when they do, they still manage to leave a log trail of microplastic behind. These microplastics are either ingested by marine animals or get mixed with the soil, entering our food chain. But our compostable plates are certified to go back to nature within just a couple of weeks. After breaking down, these plates form compost. So, rather than leaving chemicals behind, they form compost and nurture soil health.

Promoting Circular Economy

Because these compostable plates are made from plants, and go back to nature, they rightfully support a circular economy. Technically, a circular economy is all about reusing, recycling and upcycling. And that's what we at EcoSoul strive for. By upcycling plant waste and relying on natural resources, we make products that actually serve a purpose and don't affect your convenience. Moreover, they go back to nature and end up nourishing the soil rather than contaminating it.

Microwave and Freezer-Friendly

Besides being plant-based and compliant, our eco-friendly plates are safe for use in a microwave, oven, freezer or refrigerator. Moreover, because they are chemical-free, these plates do not release harmful chemicals or toxins when prone to abnormal temperatures.

No More Sagging

It's safe to say that when you lather a regular single-use plastic plate with lots of gravy and a heavy meatloaf, it tends to get soggy. But that's not the case with our compostable plates. Though they are made just from plants, we made sure that you don't have to compromise on your convenience ever again. These plates are made to withhold all those heavy juicy meals without a mess.

Easy Disposal

Another great thing about these plates is they offer easy disposal. Whether you are planning a birthday party, a night-rager or absolutely anything in between, you won't have to worry about doing the dishes. All you need to do is dispose of them in your compost bin, and you're done. Because our plates are certified compostable, these plates are a great choice, especially if you love having people over.
