Our Palm leaf plates are manufactured from the fallen leaves of the Areca Palm tree. The tree is endowed with huge leaves and fronds, which shed and fall to the ground every few weeks. These leaves are turned into disposable plates, bowls and platters as an alternative to plastic, Styrofoam and paper plates. Our line of compostable palm leaf dinnerware does not react with food and will not add any additional taste or chemicals to it. All manner of wet foods can be served without the plate or bowl becoming soggy and losing its integrity. Our Eco friendly palm leaf plates are nature's own solution to the harmful results of using paper and plastic disposables.
