Vegware :: Compostable Tableware

vegware

Currently, huge volumes of paper, plastic and styrofoam cutlery, tableware and food packaging are used and disposed of each year.

The U.S. Dept. Of Environmental Protection estimates that "as many as 50 billion styrofoam cups alone make their way into American landfills each year as well as an equal number of pieces of disposable cutlery."

However, technological developments in the area of bioplastics and fibre processing mean that a new range of alternatives based on safe, biodegradable, and annually renewable raw materials are available.

Add to this the fact that a large amount of the waste we generate is suitable for commercial composting - though the economics of sorting different types of waste means that it is disposed of as landfill instead. A switch to compostable foodware and packaging would remove the economic barrier to composting, as food waste, packaging, and tableware could simply be processed together.

 

 

Biodegradable Products Institiute

BPI approves Vegware compostable hot and cold cups.

Vegware has held Din Certco and Ok Compost certification for hot cups and PLA products respectively since mid-2009. These items have now been approved by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI), giving consumers and businesses alike confidence that Vegware US is their trusted source of compostable packaging in the US.


  • fully compostable
  • made from bagasse - the waste fibre from pressing sugar cane
  • suitable for hot, wet or oily foods
  • economic, superior performance than paper plates.

The plates and bowls are made from bagasse, the waste fibre from pressing sugar cane. Normally the fibres are burned as fuel, though the power yield is low and the process is polluting. As with our take-out boxes, these plates and bowls are pressed in a high-heat, high-pressure process.

The result is an economic and sturdy selection of tableware which is more rigid in service than paper plates or bowls, can take hot, wet or oily foods, and is compostable after use

Can I heat food in a microwave on a compostable plate or bowl or in the take-out boxes?

  • Yes, though this is only advised for 2-3 minutes.

How long will compostable plates, cups, and bowls take to break down?

  • These items break down in a few months in domestic compost conditions. When immersed in water at room temperature, disintegration takes 1 week.

Vegware Awarded GEN Seal Of Approval For Sustainable Disposables

VegwareUS Praised For Series Of Solutions To A Widespread Environmental Problem

Danielson, CT August 11, 2009 VegwareUS, the Connecticut based company that last year launched its nationwide distribution of eco-friendly food service packaging and catering products was recently awarded the prestigious Seal Of Approval by the Green Educational Network. This recognition follows the company's ten-month efforts to secure their position in the North Anerican eco-friendly food service market.

From the Green Education Network website: "Green Education Network is pleased to award its Seal of Approval to this environmental-solutions leader, and we thank Environmental Quality Commission Chairman Mark Pappa of Newington CT for introducing us personally to the good people of CT-based Vegware. Green Education Network is an international website, but seeks to do its part in its home state of CT and local community of Glastonbury CT, which is blessed with many solution contributors and a green-intense Town Government. Vegware is doing the same."
