Annually, the USA produces 2.38 million tons of waste generated from disposable cups and plates alone! Disposable plates are thrown away after only one use, creating huge environmental costs. Plate-Oh! is a biodegradable disposable plate with a unique construction of individual layers pressed together. Peeling the used upper layer reveals a clean plate underneath. The user can peel and reuse the plate for up to ten times.
Plate-oh! is a solution that works with consumer behaviors, and not against them. We did not want a solution that no one will buy, but one that will allow us to create an impact. We did this by understanding why consumers are buying so many disposable products in the first place. People enjoy disposable plates because they are cheap and minimize the need for dishes. Plate-oh does not ask consumers to make sacrifices; on the contrary, it is still as economical and convenient as regular disposable plates, but simply better for the environment.
