Forget just avoiding BPAs in your drinkware — there’s a way to go chemical-free on a whole other level with the innovation of eco-friendly wheat straw. That’s right: the same plant that becomes edible, delicious breads and pastas, can be transformed into dinnerware, like the beautifully minimal mug seen here.

From San Francisco-based home goods purveyors Maison Maxx comes a line of plates, bowls, utensils and mugs created from plant material. While not edible, its source material is natural wheat — scraps of wheat straw are visibly scattered throughout the surface of these products. Completely renewable, each piece is biodegradable and food-safe; metals and petrol-based chemicals are entirely absent, yet they’re strong enough to be shatterproof and safe for the dishwasher, microwave, fridge and freezer.

Materials aren’t the only highlight of this product, though. The eco-friendly wheat straw mug and the entirety of this collection have been thoughtfully designed, for simplistic beauty and ergonomic superiority. A curved handle fits your grip with ease; the cup tilts to just the right angle for rack drying.

Ultimately durable and great-looking enough to display even on open shelves, you won’t have to make any compromises to make your kitchen a little more earth-friendly.
