Houseables' 16 oz. soup bowls are made from eco-friendly bagasse, a 100% biodegradable and compostable byproduct of the mighty sugar cane. They come in bulk cases of 500, making them perfect for commercial or private use. With a 5.5" diameter and 2.5" depth, each bowl will safely hold 12 oz. (300 ml) of your favorite soups, sauces, or liquids. This amount is an appropriate serving size that helps control portion waste reduction. Our bowls are microwave safe up to 4 minutes of reheat time. Without any toxic chemical dyes or designs, our bowls are completely safe for serving and storing foods.
Better for you, better for the earth
Plates and bowls from bagasse are pressed through high-heat and high-pressure processes. Bagasse products biodegrade within 60 days. When that natural degradation occurs, those products provide natural ingredients back into the environment. These products are the perfect alternative to those unfortunate Styrofoam containers. Toxic coated Styrofoam contains harmful chemicals that are released when you heat containers made out of the synthetic resin in a microwave (the term 'nuking' has never been so appropriate before). And if that weren't enough, Styrofoam is non-biodegradable. So every time you see a Styrofoam container so thoughtfully littered on the ground somewhere, remember to yourself -- people are often the worst and that container is there forever.
