A biodegradable disposable plate that can be used several times
Plate-Oh is a biodegradable multi-layered disposable plate. It aims to target environmental issues including single use disposable plates that generate a lot of waste. Annually, the USA produces 2.38 million tons of waste generated from disposable cups and plates alone!
Layers of paper plates are pressed together for Plate-oh. Peeling a used layer reveals a clean plate underneath. You can peel and reuse the plate up to ten times.
Disposable plates are in demand due to the convenience they offer. With Plate-oh, convenience is offered without negatively impacting the environment. This environmentally conscious design is an economically friendly and convenient solution. Plate-Oh does not ask you to make sacrifices, on the contrary, it is still as economical and convenient as regular disposable plates. Simply better for the environment.
