Pros: hardy, beautiful, compostable, biodegradable
While a disposable plate is never as good as one that you use 9000 times over, these things are beautiful, and they're conversation starters. They look like their fine wood plates from afar, but even up close when you realize they're not, you're still not disappointed. Super light-weight, but much stronger than any styrofoam or paper or plastic plate you've ever handled. If you need disposable dinnerware, I can't imagine why you would use anything else.
