Maverick design star Tom Dixon is a household name in England, where they take design more seriously than us yokels accross the pond. Dixon is most famous for being the creative director of Habitat, the UK-based home-furnishings shop.

Recently, Dixon has been experimenting with biodegradeable plastics made from compressed natural materials such as byproducts of coconut, rice and bamboo processing. He has created a line of biodegradeable plates, bowls and cups dubbed Eco Ware . This elegant line of sustainable tableware is 85% bamboo bound with a water-soluble polymer.



According to the website, Eco Ware is fine enough for formal occasions, tough enough for the outdoors, and robust enough for every-day use. The best part is that after a long functional life (5 years give or take), the Eco Ware objects can be recyled into plant pots or simply composted back to the earth.
