When it comes to rice paper, this organic material is appealing to sight, touch, is compostable and biodegradable. Furthermore, rice paper is landfill-friendly; this means that natural bacteria can decompose it in very little time. Adding to that, it won’t generate any carbon dioxide as it decomposes. You guessed it; it lowers our carbon footprint on the world.
