These Grenware bowls and plates by ecosource are made of rice hulls, natural binding agents (a combination of starch based, water soluble binders and biodegradable additives) and ground coconut shell.

Although durable and elegant, composting the dinnerware requires only about four months in a good working compost. (Grenware place setting for four, plus serving bowl, $104)
