Paper plates don’t have to be ugly. Unfortunately they usually are. Most aren’t even very functional, and the ones built with some sort of function in mind are often made from plastic or styrofoam creating an ecological nightmare.
The Japanese are always thinking. Disposable tableware can be aesthetically pleasing, functional, and made from sensible materials. Wasara paper tableware is made from Reed Pulp and Bagasse (Bagasse, is produced after extracting juice from sugarcane and usually discarded).
This stuff looks amazing. I’m sure it won’t be cheap in the states, but hey, it looks cool.
