Paper plates are much more popular these days, and people prefer having paper plates at parties as they are hassle-free.
But have you ever thought about the negative consequences of using paper plates? If not, we’re here to let you know that you’re not fair to yourself and the environment as well.
Are Paper Plates Biodegradable?
Well, they are, but not really! Paper plates are considered to be biodegradable in nature, but in reality, they don’t completely get decomposed and become part of the soil. It just doesn’t happen.
Paper plates aren’t completely made of paper - there are other inorganic materials as well. Once get surrounded by such inorganic materials, the process of biodegradation gets disturbed. Instead, it releases methane gas, which is quite detrimental to the atmosphere more than carbon.
Paper Plates vs Plastic Plates
One might ask that if paper plates are not a good choice, then should we move towards plastic plates? NO!
Not at all! The plastic plates are NEVER EVER going to decompose. They’ll stay there on the planet for the rest of their everlasting life. Paper plates, no doubt, do get decomposed but partially. While on the other hand, the plastic plates are never going to get decomposed. So, yeah, paper plates are better than plastic plates.
But are there EVEN BETTER choices? 100% Biodegradable? Nature-Friendly?
Yes! Let’s have a look at some best alternatives to plastic and paper plates.
Some Alternatives to Paper Plates
Paper takes much longer time to decompose, and in reality, it doesn’t completely go through the process of decomposition. There’s always something left behind due to the inorganic materials (as we just discussed).
In the case of palm leaf disposable plates and compostable bagasse plates, the process of decomposition takes around 2 months to completely decompose these biodegradable dinnerware sets.
