ECO-PLATE PLATE RECT 230X140MM
The naturally shed leaf sheath from the Areca Palm in India is strong, semi flexible yet not brittle, odourless, water and heat resistant.
This leaf sheath has its own natural grains, characteristic texture and colour. The palm leaf can be used to bake foodstuff and can even tolerate microwave cooking. With such amazing properties, this
100% natural product is beautiful the way nature intended, and can be returned to the earth.
The leaves are sorted, and
then washed and heat pressed into a variety of shapes such as bowls, plates, platters
maximising the use of this beautiful natural product.
The Areca Palm tree is a tall, beautiful tree that is hugely abundant in India. The trees are harvested for their fruit, the betel nut.
Areca trees have large leaves, or fronds, which shed and fall to the ground every few weeks. The leaves are usually collected and burned.
Our palm leaf range turns these leaves
into disposable plates, bowls, platters and party tableware, as an alternative to paper plates and trays.
The plates are natural, compostable, biodegradable and stylish.
The production process is very simple: leaves are washed in water and heat pressed into the correct shape (this also sterilises the leaf).
This is what makes our products different. No pulp, no starch, just a washed and pressed leaf. Totally natural.
What to do with your Palm Leaf product after use?
You can compost it.
If you don’t compost at home but you’ve got a garden, you could just break the plates up and spread the pieces round your garden. They will break down, enriching the soil like any other leaf, within a couple of months. Beautiful like nature intended, and when finished - return to the Earth.
