BuchaWare / Disposable tableware

BuchaWare

BuchaWare is made from dried SCOBY — Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast, usually used for kombucha infusing. Tableware made from SCOBY is easy and cheap in production — only black tea, sugar and vinegar are needed. BuchaWare is 100% biodegradable as well as water and heat-resistant. Eco-friendly alternatives to plastic utensils already exist — they’re made from avocado seeds, starch or applesauce. Their production is quite complicated and expensive, because these products are cultivated only in selected countries. We create a 100% biodegradable disposable tableware, which production won’t require any special products or equipment.
