Empress EarthNew ** Empress Earth – Bagasse Line

Empress Earth Bagasse Products utilize what would commonly be a waste product from sugar production (residual sugar cane juice) to make a wide variety of sustainable products. Since sugarcane is a renewable plant, the by-product is a great raw material to use for products including bowls, plates, clamshells and platters. Bagasse products are pressed in a high-heat, high-pressure process. They are 100% compostable, heat tolerant and can even be put in the microwave or the freezer. Empress Products understands the need for compostable products made from environmentally friendly raw resources. With this new Bagasse line, there are sure to be more sustainable options to fit all of your needs! The Bagasse line includes hinged containers, plates, bowls and platters.
