About Us

about_us

GreenPlate deals in the distribution of fully sustainable biodegradable, compostable disposable products. We offer high quality single use tableware, including cups, “glasses”, bowls and cutlery, vegetable-based bags and packaging, all in compostable, environmentally sustainable form. There is no land being stripped of its trees or leaves as well as no animal food being used.

These products are made of bamboo, sugar cane residue, rice husks, wheat straw, cornstarch, palm leaves and other biological substances. Durable and leak-proof raw materials, they are ideal substitutes for the plastic articles now in use.

The idea behind our biodegradable products is to have an alternative to the plastics that currently dominate the food industry, delivering material free of environmental guilt, as well as helping to protect our ecosystem. We always aim to find these replacements manufactured as close as possible, reducing the carbon footprint, and to offer them at reasonable prices.

As none of these articles contain any fossil fuel derivatives, they also play a part in combatting the rising tide of plastic waste.

The articles on offer are generally manufactured in Switzerland, all carry certificates of compliance with socio-ethical and ecological standards such as Sedex, SA 8000 or BSCI. These certificates are of paramount importance.
