Think all disposable plates have to be boring white or ho-hum neutral? Not with these biodegradable bamboo plates from Viva Terra.

The set of four comes in a variety of colorful, complementary patterns -- and though they're dishwasher safe they're also biodegradable, so you can reuse them without a lot of fuss, and then know they're breaking at the end of their life cycle. (Patterned Bamboo Plates, $39)
