Edible plates taste like dry cereal and are super eco-friendly
First it was biodegradeable plastic made from organic materials that they can be eaten by marine wildlife.
Then came pasta straws that provide a safe alternative to plastic straws that litter the landfills and add to the plastic waste problem in the world.
There were also edible spoons made of flour and wheat. Now comes these edible plates that are strong and sturdy enough to hold even soup dishes and yes, they can be eaten if you really feel like it.
According to a video from Facebook page We Need This, the plates are made of wheat bran and was developed to serve as a safe alternative to the 1.7 million disposable plates that the world consumes annually on the average.
The plates are made of compressed bran, a high fiber ingredient that completely disintegrates in a month. Once you use it, you could either dispose of it and not feel guilty about generating more plastic waste to endanger marine wildlife, or you can have it for a tasty snack.
According to its creator, it actually tastes like dry cereal. Imagine what it would taste like after you’ve used it as a bowl for tomato soup. Yum! (ANGEL ONG)
