We Bring Nature to Your Table
Plates Made From Plants No Chemical No Pest Nothing
While we can’t promise that your meal will be guilt-free, we can promise that your tableware will be. Our environmentally friendly plates, bowls and serving dishes are made only from two products: fallen leaves and water. They’re non-toxic, biodegradable, compo-stable, durable, lightweight, convenient and downright stylish.
For hundreds – if not thousands – of years rural Indians have used fallen leaves from the indigenous areca palm tree as disposable dinnerware. The leaves are gathered, soaked, cleaned, then heated and molded. When all the moisture has been squeezed out, the leaves retain the shape of the mold. After use, the leaves are composted, with biodegradation occurring in just six weeks.
- Durability – the leaves used are extremely strong, do not melt, “bleed” moisture or deform in the sun, and can even be used in the microwave or heated in the oven
- Beauty – these plates are extremely attractive and each one is different, just as each leaf is different; 2 consumers perceive the plates to be a premium product
- Sustainability – the plates are the most sustainable disposable products on the market (“it’s hard to beat a leaf!”) and compare favorably to all other “green” competitors
- Affordability – Independent catering services and caterers at universities, corporations and restaurants who find paper, plastic and foam too informal for their guests and yet find china impractical (especially for large or outdoor events); on a relative, prevent basis.

Cleaning and Sterilization of fallen Palm Leaves:
Every palm tree naturally sheds 6 to 7 leaves a year. The leaves undergoes a cleaning process, which is accomplished through pressurized water and further soaked in spring water to remove the impurities. These leaves are pressed in an advanced hydraulic heavy-duty machine using CNC dyes to get desired shape. In this process the palm leaf is heat to 180`C thereby heat sterilizing the plates. Then the plates are carefully checked by the quality inspection team to remove the plates with manufacturing defects such as partially sterilized, has no fine sharp curves and of course rarely tiny holes on the plate.
