German company, Leaf Republic, makes disposable tableware which is completely renewable and biodegradable.
The company designed the plates to reduce plastic waste. They are stitched together with fibres from palm leaves and can disintegrate within 28 days in compost.
You can buy them online for around AUD $13.64 (£8.50) each.
