These 100% bio-degradable products made out of plant fiber can replace the environment damaging plastics in future.

We all know about the harmful effects plastic has on us as well as the environment. That’s the reason too many corporates are concerned about and are trying to bring more and more biodegradable products into the market.

A year ago we told you about edible cutlery and now it’s Earthware. It’s the South India’s first only manufacturing unit of products made from plant fibre which are 100% bio-degradable.

Earthware manufactures eco-friendly food containers, plates, bowls etc. that are also healthy to eat out of. Products made from fibre like sugar cane, wheat, bamboo, cellulose etc. are known as bagasse products. They are a result of natural plant fibre and compostable.

The containers are made of bagasse which are water-resistant, shatterproof, microwave-safe and decomposes on their own within 90 days, which makes them a perfect substitute to plastic.

“We’ve been around for a long time and then suddenly the demand has doubled,” says Samanvi Bhograj, founder of Bengaluru-based Earthware. Samanvi recalls the start point for Earthware, saying, “We weren’t looking at it as a business: it was more of a social responsibility thing for us. The business has emerged now,” she told Indiahikes.

Plastic is toxic! It is full of harmful by-products and chemicals that are released during its breakdown process. Biodegradable products, however, are completely safe and free of toxins which end up harming us over the course of time.

Earthware makes cups,plates, bowls, cutlery and lunch boxes. The Bangalore-based company ships all over India as well as abroad. It’s time for us to shift our focus towards more environment friendly products like these in innovating, spreading and using such products keeping it’s impact on our health and the environment at large.

Biz Divas Foundation supports Sahpathi in its quest to address learning deficiencies among underprivileged children of Silokhra, an urban village in Gurgaon.

Electricity is a major problem in most Indian villages and across the world due to which many children are forced to drop their dream for education. But this simple idea is proving a boom for these underprivileged children that they can continue their studies even after sunset in the absence of electricity.

We can spread the news and help more people and organizations to contribute for the bright future of these underprivileged children. Organizations can undertake it as a part of their CSR.

The cost involved in making one bag, from start to finish is Rs. 1500, including the cost of the solar panel and LED lights.
