My work Christmas function is usually a barbecue on the river foreshore. It's a lovely spot, and they do really well to get the hundreds of hungry families fed! This year the plates that they used appeared to be of an organic nature, and C commented that we should remember the name and get similar for our engagement party. The wonders of google and I tracked down several different versions of plates made from the leaf of the Areca palm. I have ordered a stash of them from Biome, who claim that they are "Totally biodegradable, with no chemicals or synthetics used in the manufacture, they can also be mulched, given for animal fodder, or used upside down on garden beds as a mulch". Hopefully they will be good to use as well!
