Comments Off on Beautiful zero-waste bowls are made entirely from leaves

Nicknamed the “one-way dishes,” these leaf bowls are made with zero plastics, additives, oils, glues, or chemicals. All bowls are made in a German factory near Munich using CNC mills and pressing machines. Each biodegradable bowl is made from three layers: a waterproof leaf-made paper layer sandwiched between two layers of pressed and stitched leaves. The bowls also come with an optional lid made from bioplastic or recycled plastic .

It is about preventing plastic waste. It is about preventing trees from being cut for paper production. It is about the next generations.” Leaf Republic is currently raising funds to take their biodegradable tableware off the ground and into a fully automated production line. You can help the company and buy a set of Leaf Republic plates by pledging support on their Kickstarter . + Leaf Republic Kickstarter Images via Leaf Republic

Photo: Mazda Testing Methodology Matters Mazda’s press release about the next general of its “2” model has been spreading around the net like wildfire in the past few days, and sadly, it seems that many of these stories omit some important facts and focus on “70 MPG OMG LIKE HYBRID!”.
