Most of us are all too familiar with ugly, floppy disposable paper plates. The good news is that there is a tasteful alternative.
Wasara is elegant and sustainable single use, disposable tableware and its aesthetic and sensitive design mimics the feel of Japanese ceramics.
Shinichiro Ogata is the creative director of Wasara in Japan and he is also an affiliate professor at the University Museum, Univertsity of Tokyo.
The product range is made from 100% renewable, non-wood materials including bamboo, reed pulp, and bagasse (a by-product of the sugar refining process) and are fully compostable and biodegradable.
By way of example the Wasara Kaku 6 inch square plate sells on Amazon at US$72.22 for 200 pieces and the Wasara Maru 9 inch round plate sells at US$59.17 for 100 pieces.
