Plenty of compostable dishware doesn’t stand up to everyday dining. Whether they’re not made very well, get soaked through by a messy meal, or just can’t take the heat of your microwave, you probably think they should get out of your kitchen. Just before you jump the gun on banishing the biodegradable you should know that all paper plates are not created equal. Verterra’s new line of compostable plates can handle everything you dish out, whether you’re using them in the microwave to reheat last night’s dinner or you’re going back for your tenth serving of chili. These babies, molded using the simple ingredients of leaves and water are certainly up to snuff and even up to being used in the oven. This dinnerware created from agricultural waste bears a strong resemblance to a classic wood dishware. And while they might not last as long as real thing, they’re ever so durable and compost in a home system inside of three months to insure environmental friendliness.
