Disposable plates that are biodegradable are what you need for your upcoming events. In this article, we check out how our eco plates fared for a temple’s prayer event. Oh boy, there were a lot of curries!
Strong, sustainable and simple are three words that come to mind when thinking of our eco plates. The popularity of the dinnerware gets it dubbed as wedding plates, and utilised for numerous occasions such as Hari Raya Open House. Customers appreciate reducing plastic wastage with disposables that are sturdy in structure. Having that said, St Anne’s Feast saw our biodegradable lunch boxes used to pack meals. The thickness of the material eliminates the need for a plastic coating on top. Sadly, a few disposable plates on the market add a layer of wax on top. The plastic releases chemicals when in contact with hot food as per Harvard.
Biodegradable Disposable Plates for Temple
It’s a norm to serve meals after prayers in temples. And you know the template for Indian food – hot dishes with ladles of gravy. This time, the menu comprised of Nasi Lemak set, sweets and snacks, and hot-off-the-pan thosai (Indian crepe). The portions were just perfect for our 9-inch bio plate. Did you think of the 10-inch plate first? Well, the large disposable plate could fit up to 6 items in one go. Click here to check out the generous meal on the dinnerware.
With two different gravies ladled onto the thosai and a serving of nasi lemak, the dinner was quite heavy. Nevertheless, the plate did not deform and got the job done. The rim of the plate made it comfortable to finish the meal, containing the gravy appropriately.
Have you ever tried flimsy, soft paper plates before? It’s a tough call to serve a proper dinner and just think of balancing it single-handedly. Oops, no chance. As per the image above, the person who opted for nasi lemak, found it easy to carry with a single hand.
Leakproof Disposable Dinnerware
The various textures and hot temperatures of the thosai were pleasantly contented by the eco plates. Most importantly, it was great to see guests add ladles of gravy. No leakage from the plate despite the significant amount of curry and grease. A few individuals checked on the surface of the dinnerware and vouch for the paddy straw material. Not forgetting that 6oz paper cups took care of the hot coffee.
No surprise that bio plates and lunch boxes are a common pick for festivals too. The previous Penang’s Chitra Pournami emphasised going green and each year, Thaipusam sees our bio plates being the best dinnerware. We hope this article provides a window into fitting an Indian meal on our bio plates.
