Kizara is a Japanese organization that was formed to address a forestry management challenge in their country, where the increase in imported lumber resulted in unused wastewood in the Japanese forests.The firm struck the notion of slicing the wood into paper thin slices and using it to create new products, including plates. Kizara is an alternative to plastic and paper plates. Wether it is burned or buried in a landfill, or simply thrown away with regular trash it returns to the earth naturally; Kizara does not contain any harmdful materials and can naturally decompose.
