tree-free paper plates

These WASARA plates (designed in Japan, obv) are what I was looking for two years ago when we did our rehearsal picnic-on-the-beach.

They're not cheap, but they are made of 100% tree-free renewable materials (sugar cane fiber, bamboo, and reed pulp). Biodegradable and compostable.

Available at Branch, where you can also get these bamboo Bambu utensils in bulk packs of 250.

  1. these make my heart go pitter patter. they remind me of the verterra plates we used at our wedding.

    i am a sucker for the natural/ eco-friendly look! so much better than plastic.

  2. we're using bambu plates and these utensils

    for our barn reception in october! they were just delivered, i LOVE how they look! and, best part, no clean up stress!

  3. iheartwiki--how did Verterra products hold up at your reception? We just received the sample pack from Verterra and some of the edges are frayed and/or peeling and now we're not sure if we should use them at our reception. Would love your feedback. Thanks!

    ESB--love your posts! We're getting hitched in October and I only just discovered you a few months ago...should have been following you all along, as you would have saved me much stress. But hey, better late than never. Keep up the snarkiness.
