Plastic and glass take up to 1,000,000 years to decompose in natural environment. Imagine our landfills where plastic and glass dining wares are left to biodegrade naturally. Poisonous toxins and particles will also be released into the ground over time.
By switching to natural plant materials like rice husks, these materials can be turned into natural compost after just 180 days. Producing materials out of natural plant materials also uses up to 70% less CO2 to produce than conventional plastic.
Rice husk is an agricultural waste. Annually,the world’s rice production is approximately 500 million tons. Of this, the ratio of rice husk to rice is approximately 1:4, which is equivalent to about 125 million tons of rice husks produced each year.
A common practice in many countries is burning of rice husks in the fields to remove what has accumulated after harvest, causing severe air pollution which produces large amount of carbon dioxide and sulphur dioxide and destroys the soil structure. It also poses a danger to farmers whose homes are susceptible to catching fire when strong wind blows.
Through our recycling process, rice husks are transformed to become natural and eco-friendly dining ware, cutleries and other kitchen ware that do not contain any harmful substances.
We believe in creating a safe environment for you, which is why we chose to craft our products out of the humble rice husk. This was our breakthrough and since the beginning, this hardy product of nature has allowed us to create high quality, eco-friendly and toxic-free products.
Husks Ware products are developed based on the commitment of delivering safe, environmentally-responsible products to homes across the world.
