They are made from 100% sugarcane (Bagasse). Oxygen bleached only (white in colour).
Bagasse is the pulp material remaining after the extraction of the sugar-bearing juice from sugarcane.
Our sugarcane plates have no plastic or wax coating and are a far superior alternative to polystyrene, plastic and paper products.
