Fiesta Green’s food packaging is made from renewable bamboo, PLA, birch wood and sugarcane to give you highly sustainable takeaway alternatives to polystyrene. Polystyrene is not biodegradable and it could take up to 1 million years before the process of decomposition even begins. Given the time it takes for these materials to break down, moving away from materials that contribute to environmental destruction is becoming increasingly important
Bamboo, PLA, Birch Wood and sugarcane packaging is not just great for the environment but this biodegradable and compostable packaging is also strong and practical, perfect for serving a variety of hot and cold dishes. These products are ideal for mobile caterers to use at large events such as festivals, weddings and food markets.
When serving out of a box or cone won’t do, we have a choice of eco-friendly plates and bowls made from carbon-saving materials. From palm leaf plates to bowls made from recycled sugarcane, this range gives you the perfect tableware to serve your dishes in a way that's kinder to the planet. Palm leaf is a great choice for a sustainably minded business, palm leaf decomposes at an accelerated rate in comparison to other materials traditionally used to produce single use disposables.
Unlike polystyrene and plastic, sugarcane is fully biodegradable taking a maximum of 60 days to decompose, this means that by choosing this more eco-firefly material you lessen your impact on the environment significantly. These eco-friendly plates and bowls can be paired with the Fiesta Green biodegradable or compostable forks, knives and spoons for a fully sustainable dining experience.

The Fiesta Green range offers plant based straws made from plant based CPLA, a perfect replacement for traditional plastic as these straws look, feel and act in the same way that a plastic straw would, however, they break down into nutrient-rich compost when disposed of in the correct facilities. Our CPLA straws are a like-for-like eco-friendly alternative to the plastic straw.
