At The Creative Kitchen, we try to use Earth-friendly, sustainable products whenever possible. That is why we were so excited when we came across Mika Pak, a company dedicated to manufacturing products created from renewable resources! Their products, including plates, utensils, containers, and cups, are plant-based – making them biodegradable and compostable. Mika Pak’s products are not only sustainable, but stylish too! We love the natural look of their Palm Leaf Plates (made from fallen palm leaves), the bright colors of their PLA Bio-Plastic Utensils (made from a sugar-based, plastic-free material), and the simplicity of their Bagasse Bowls (made from crushed sugar cane fibers). These environmentally friendly products are sturdy enough to handle your heaviest foods and natural enough to compost in 120 days!
From the Eyes of a Parent:
These products are great to keep on hand. I love to use them at big events like birthday parties or family dinners when I know a lot of dishes and utensils will be used. Knowing that Mika Pak’s products are eco-friendly and made from sustainable resources makes me feel better about using disposable products, since these products will have less of a negative impact of the Earth.
Mika Pak offers a wide array of products including:
- Cups & Lids
All products are made from biodegradable and compostable materials from sustainable sources. These materials include:
The Icing on the Cake:
Bagasse products are made from crushed sugarcane fibers, making them tree free and a great substitute for Styrofoam. They are biodegradable, compost in 60-120 days, and are fridge, freezer, and microwave safe.
The sturdy pressed palm leaf products are USDA certified organic and are biodegradable, compostable, disposable, and washable. They are also refrigerator, freezer, and heat safe.
PLA Bio-Plastic is a non-toxic, sugar-based, plastic-free material. The plastic-like products are made from corn grown in the USA and are fully compostable within 90 to 120 days.
