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.
