It takes about 60% less material by weight to make EPS plates than it does to make paper plates of comparable functionality.

EPS plates, trays, bowls, etc. are soak proof.

As stated earlier, whereas plastic cups are recyclable, paper cups are mostly not recyclable since paper cups are generally coated with plastics. Studies have shown that paper products in a landfill may not decompose and may even generate deadly methane gas, if decomposed aneorobically.

The total energy required to produce rigid/foam plastic disposables is less when compared to the energy required to produce alternatives to plastic disposables.

Are these products microwave friendly?

Polypropylene disposable products are more microwave friendly because of their physical properties.
