Disposable Tableware

Our disposable tableware range is made with sugarcane pulp, a by-product of the sugar refining industry. Sugarcane pulp offers an alternative to paper which is plant-based and rapidly renewable - sugarcane takes less than two years to grow, compared to trees, which take five or more years to grow (up to 30+ years).

Frequently asked questions

What is sugarcane pulp & how is it made?

Sugarcane pulp (also known as bagasse) is a versatile and inexpensive alternative to paper that is produced as an agricultural by-product of the sugarcane harvesting process. Sugarcane pulp is produced when sugarcane is harvested and crushed to extract its juice to make sugar, leaving behind a fibrous substance which is then kept wet and blended to create a pulp. This pulp can then be pressed into the required shapes at a high temperature to produce packaging which is sturdy and compostable.

What are the environmental advantages of using sugarcane pulp over other materials?

Whilst paper can be recycled, trees take 7-10 years to grow, substantial harvesting time and land clearing, so the environmental impact of using this resource is still incredibly significant. Forests store a substantial amount of carbon, which when destroyed is released into the atmosphere, contributing to an acceleration in global warming. Sugarcane pulp is rapidly renewable when compared to alternative materials, with sugarcane taking only 15-16 months to grow.

How do I dispose of sugarcane pulp products?

Sugarcane pulp is home compostable and breaks down into a nutrient-rich compost which can be used as a soil fertiliser. The rate of decomposition depends on the composting conditions, such as the temperature and moisture.
