A plate with purpose

The molded fibers in Chinet® Classic White™ products are biodegradable when composted. That means they can contribute to nutrient-rich substances for flower and vegetable gardens.

From plate to plant

Get your compost bin started by finding a sunny spot in your yard. Add torn plates, lawn clippings and leftover fruit and veggies mixing both wet and dry materials. When the compost turns spongy, it’s ready for the flowerbeds.
