|PROPERTIES||ARECA LEAF PRODUCTS||BAMBOO PRODUCTS||PLASTIC PRODUCTS||PAPER PRODUCTS||CANE BASED PRODUCTS|
|BIODEGRADABILITY||Naturally degraded (in soil) in less than 60 days after the products are disposed||Generally biodegradable in 4-6 months||Products made from plastics are non biodegradable||Manufactured with wax laminates hence not biodegradable||Biodegradable in 3-7 months|
|COMPOSTABILITY||Areca products will breakdown and act as fertilizer after disposal||Bamboo is not compostable. Unless burnt, it ends in landfill.||Products made from plastics are not compostable||Mfd. with wax laminates hence not compostable. Products will add to the land fill||Not Compostable|
|RAW MATERIAL SOURCE||Renewable source. Products are made from fallen dry leaves which otherwise is wasted||Products are made from Bamboo trees that are being cut for making plates||Plastics are petroleum by products and cannot be considered as renewable||Majority are made from recycled waste papers & chemically processed for achieving the quality||Made from sugarcane waste using chemically pulped & bonding agents|
|THERMAL RESISTANCE||Do not transfer heat & maintains shape. Can hold heat & cold liquids||High possibility of product losing its shape & rigidity if in contact with hot liquid foods||Can hold hot foods and liquids without any deformation||Products will transfer heat. The laminates will help to hold liquids||Transfers heat. Often the product deforms when served with hot liquids|
|MICROWAVE / OVEN USAGE||Can be used to microwave foods. Also safe for oven cooking to certain temp.||Not microwave oven safe as the laminate could mix with the food items.||Some are microwave safe.
