Better Than Disposable Plates

I think Mina Song’s idea for an inflatable plate called the “Air Dish” is quite a sound one. You’re on a picnic and you care for the environment so you use the garbage can to dispose your used paper plates. But still that’s waste of plates/resources right. Change the scene and use the vinyl Air Dish instead: inflate it, use it, rinse it, fold and stow it….no bother of disposing it anytime soon. Just be careful about pricking it.

    Or you could use a ceramic plate. Or one made out of wood.

    This is a great idea, certainly catchy, but then, what’s it made of? Probably a petroleum based material. Oh, reading above, it’s vinyl, then that’s definitely the case. Is there BPA in it? I’d be concerned about what might leach into what I’m eating on it.

    I’ve been a fan of Verterra plates for some time now, since they’re made of only Palm leaves, steamed and shaped into plates and bowls. Apparently they compost really well, and can be tossed into the regular trash to biodegrade.

    Oh, this is just excruciating!! That pandent is gorgeous.Okay, I’ll just take one more look and let it fly…209 (because 210 was already taken, boo)!I have a collection (well, compared to you, it is NOT a collection) of broken plates/bowls/mugs that I hope to someday do something with. Kudos to you for doing that something!!Moxy JaneAustin, TX
