Don’t these plates make you want to sit outside with a pitcher of lemonade? Most affordable, patterned plates are made of melamine, which can potentially leach toxins if it is heated. In other words, you’re safe as long as you don’t put them in the microwave, but why take the chance, right? These babies are made of renewable bamboo, so that makes them an instant win in my book.
Between the fun shape, colorful patterns and the great price, I’m tempted to “let” my husband barbecue every day so we can have an excuse to eat outside. Or at the very least, they’d make a festive, reusable addition to my daughter’s end-of-summer birthday party.
Why It’s Green:
