how are eco u products more eco-friendly as compared to other biodegradable disposables?

not only are our sugarcane products biodegradable, they’re made from up-cycled sugarcane, a by-product of sugar production, and are naturally compostable.

 

other biodegradable disposables such as bio-plastics are made from corn and vegetable oils, therefore are dependent on industrial farming of large fields of crops. they also need to be composted in a specialised facility, otherwise they decompose similarly to normal plastics. 

what is the difference between biodegradable and compostable?

biodegradable products decompose with the help of bacteria and other organisms. they don’t require any chemicals for decomposition so they are less damaging than non biodegradable products (e.g. plastics, styrofoam)

 

all compostables are also biodegradable, except they take it one step further.

 

our products are compostable, which means upon decomposition they give back to the earth by providing rich nutrients to the soil. you can toss your tableware into one of your plant pots to give it some extra fertiliser! 

why is wood more eco-friendly?

our cutlery is made from birch wood attained from a Forest Stewardship Council certified plantation, a well-managed resource that contributes positively to the environment. unlike plastic cutlery, it is compostable and has lower emissions if incinerated.

are your products re-usable?

our products are disposable and not intended for re-use.

what is the shelf-life of your products?

the shelf-life of our products is 18 months. we recommend you keep our products indoors, in a cool and dry place.

why are people switching from porcelain tableware to sugarcane tableware?

porcelain ware production requires a lot more resources (e.g. electricity, water, raw materials) as compared to biodegradable products like sugarcane tableware. also, you’ll have to use your porcelain ware multiple times in order to neutralize the effects of production! unlike glass products, porcelain ware can’t be recycled when broken as well.

how long does shipping take?

i need my order urgently! do you have express shipping?



yes! please contact us to arrange for express shipping.  you are also welcome to collect from our showroom.
