Beverly, the product description clearly reads that the plates decompose in 4-6 months when composted. Of course, in a traditional landfill they would not decompose, at least not that quickly, if ever. Most of us who are concerned with green living know conditions are unfavorable for decomposing in landfills. Therefore, it is readily apparent by the description that this is a product designed for people with existing compost piles.
I don't have a compost pile, so I have no incentive to buy these plates. I don't use disposable plates at all because I do agree with you about the importance of reducing. However, if I had a compost pile and ever had the need for disposable plates, these are the ones I would use.
OK, so you think you've handled the problem of hurting the planet with bamboo plates because they are, what, not made of plastic or styrofoam? Well, yes, but that is just a piece of the problem. Overconsumption and disposable everything are as enormously monumental problems. Why promote these products as "disposable"? We are choking on our waste, not to mention the pollution that the energy to produce and ship products sends into the atmosphere. Why not promote them as reusable and save another several decades of striving to reach the next level of social and environmental awareness. Take the big leap: not harmful AND reusable. REDUCE is the first arrow on the 3 arrowed recycle symbol, as in reduce consumption and waste.
