Today's customers are more eco-conscious and are looking for businesses that are making sustainable choices. The Earth Wise Tree Free 500 ct Square Dinner Plate offers a compostable alternative to tree-based or plastic tableware and is made from a renewable resource called bagasse. Bagasse is produced from the fiber pulp of sugar cane that is left over after processing. The 9.75 inch square plate features a modern, classy shape ideal for fancier catered events and meals. Every plate is microwave safe, compostable, leak proof and cut resistant for maximum quality and durability. Add the stackable lid, which is sold separately, and meals and snacks can be stored and transported more easily. The plates are ideal for hot or cold foods served in cafes, hospitals, transportation services or at outdoor events. The Earth Wise Tree Free Square Dinner Plate is sold in quantities of 500 per case (4 packages each containing 125 plates).
