Are there paper plates that are better for the environment than others?

    There are a number of companies who sell plates made from recycled paper, however there are some plates that are biodegradable and compostable as well. Of the recycled plates, the unbleached variety are more environmentally friendly than varieties that use harmful chemicals that release a persistent organic pollutant, dioxin, in the bleaching process. Plates that are biodegradable and compostable are often derived from renewable plant sources, like sugar cane fiber and will biodegrade in a home composting system within 90 days.
