What is Compostable Plant Fiber?
Have you ever seen a field of wheat swaying in the breeze? A million supple straws move in harmony to create one of the most iconic landscapes in our country. Well what happens to those straws after the grain and chaff is extracted to make food? The wheatstraws, along with other plant fibers such as bulrish and baggase, are used to make our disposable plates and bowls! Those with wheat allergies can rest easy, because the wheatstraw does not cause allergic reactions. Also, the fibers in these compostable plates and bowls are unbleached.
