Eco-Products offers a 100% compostable alternative to conventional tree-based paper products. Known as bagasse, these paper items are made from sugarcane fiber after the sugar "juice" has been extracted. Typically, sugarcane fiber is a discarded by-product from cane sugar manufacturing. Eco-Products reclaims this fiber and uses it to create products from a material that would otherwise be thrown away or burned.
Bagasse is completely compostable in commercial facilities, and doesn't rely on any trees for production. It can take up to three tons of trees to make one ton of paper, and each tree can 10, 20 or even 30 years to mature. However, one ton of crushed sugarcane produces between 250 and 300 kg of bagasse, and sugarcane can be harvested every 18 months because it grows so fast. You can still use disposable "paper" products, but feel good that you are choosing a product that is made from rapidly renewable materials.
Eco Products sugarcane products are all BPI certified 100% compostable in commercial compost facilities and will completely compost within 180 days.
Using these sugarcane plates will reflect positively on your restaurant showing customers that you care about the world we live in!
