Eco-friendly Plates are Chic and Disposable 

Wasara single-use plates

Back in the good old disposable '80s, you could class up your paper plate "china" by sliding it into a circular wicker holder. Then came the spendier, sturdier designs, which boasted a nearly bulletproof thickness and came in an array of fashionable hues. And now, the paper plate has gotten a 21st century, eco-friendly makeover.

Wasara's line of "single-use, biodegradable and compostable pieces" are manufactured from 100 percent tree-free renewable materials, including sugar cane fiber, bamboo and reed pulp. Designed by Shinichiro Ogata in Japan, Wasara plates and bowls are oil- and water-resistant, and claim to be "responsibly manufactured" in China.

But the real draw is the line's pleasing design.

Both the square Kaku plates and the round Maru plates, which come in an array of sizes, feature a curved edge perfect for gripping in one hand. The sleek designs would be equally at home at a candlelit garden wedding or a Fourth of July park picnic. The Wasara line also includes bowls, trays, coffee cups, wine cups and tumblers, which the company claims are suitable for hot and cold foods.

The line is available in the United States through a variety of retailers, including branchhome.com, which offers retail packs of 12 plates for $8-$11 and bulk packs of 100-200 for $88-$108.
