Let's explore the article below to learn more about disposable plates, particularly KimEcopak’s sugarcane fiber plates. 

Type of Disposable Plates

Categorized by material

  • Plastic plates: Plastic plates are made from polystyrene (PS) or polypropylene (PP). Plastic plates are not biodegradable, so they will remain in our environment for hundreds even thousands of years. Besides that, if plastic plates are not improper disposal can lead to pollution of ecosystems, including oceans and landfills.
  • Foam Plates: Foam plates (maybe called styrofoam plates) are a type of disposable plate made from expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam. This kind of plate is cheap and lightweight, insulates food well, and stands up to grease and moisture. However, they are not biodegradable and need at least 500 years to break down and even could last forever. 
  • Paper plates: The primary material used to create disposable paper plates is wood pulp, which is derived from trees. Although paper plates take more material and generate more greenhouse gas when compared to foam ones, paper plates don’t release toxic chemicals and stay around for thousands of years. Therefore, this kind of plate is still a big upgrade in terms of environmental friendliness.
  • Sugarcane fiber plates: Sugarcane fiber plates (maybe called bagasse plates) are a type of disposable plate crafted from renewable sources - the fibrous residue left after extracting juice from sugarcane stalks. In addition, they can break down quickly into harmless organic biomass in a landfill and won't remain as litter on our planet. 
  • Biodegradable Plates: Biodegradable plates can be made from various materials such as plant fiber or bioplastics. They can break down naturally through biological processes into simpler compounds like water, carbon dioxide, and biomass. However, this process can not specify a specific timeframe.
  • Compostable Plates: Compostable plates are usually produced from natural resources such as cornstarch (PLA - polylactic acid), wheat straw, or other compostable plant fibers. They can break down through the process of composting into organic components within a specific timeframe and do not release any harmful microplastics or persistent waste.

Categorized by shape

  • Round Plates: The round plate is one of the most popular choices because of its versatility and aesthetic appeal. The round shape of the plate offers a large surface area for creative food presentation and decoration.
  • Square Plates: Square plates can be a contemporary alternative to round dishes. They provide table settings with a clean and modern appearance and are frequently used for more formal events or gatherings.
  • Rectangular Plates: The shape of rectangular plates is long and narrow. They are frequently used to serve sushi, finger meals, and appetizers. 
  • Oval Plates: Oval plates have a slightly elongated shape with rounded edges. These plates are frequently used to serve foods like boiling chicken, fried or steamed fish, and such. But it's vital to remember that this plate shape is only appropriate for whole fried or steamed dishes.
  • Compartment Plates: Also known as divided plates or sectioned plates. This kind of plate has multiple compartments to keep different food items separate. They are commonly used for serving meals with multiple components, such as cafeteria-style settings or employee canteens. Here are some common types of compartment plates: One-compartment plates, Two-compartment Plates, Three-compartment Plates, Four-compartment Plates.

To make sure that paper plates can be compostable, you need to check the product packaging or consult with the manufacturer to determine.

What are disposable paper plates made of?

The primary material typically used in disposable paper plates is paper pulp, which is derived from wood fibers. The wood fibers will be processed and transformed into a pulp consistency and then crafted into plates.
