MANUFACTURING PROCESS:

The 100% biodegradable plates and bowls are durable, lightweight and require minimal skillful processing from tree to table. The fallen palm leaf is gathered (it is not cut - only the fallen leaves are suitable) it is then washed in spring water then heat-pressed into shapes (this also sterilizes the leaf) - no chemicals, waxes, dyes, or additives are used. Palm leaf plates are a stylish and unique alternative to other disposable tableware on the market.
Stronger and more natural than corn or potato starch, sugar cane, paper & bamboo plates. They won’t harm our environment and can be burnt or taken to a landfill or composted. Microwave oven and refrigerator safe. Don’t try this with other disposal plates! This cottage industry provides a source of income for many families in asia, making Palm Leaf Plates a responsible decision for your family, their families, and our environment.

Step 1:
Fallen leaves are handpicked and stored in the farm until a specific count is reached.
Step 2:
Once the minimum count is reached this will be transported to the nearby manufacturing plant.
Step 3:
At the manufacturing plant the leaves are washed with plain water, where this used water is redirected to the trunk of other trees.
Step 4:
Once the leaves are dried, they are pressed to the desired shapes in a press for 60 to 80 seconds.
Step 5:
The pressed leaves are trimmed, cleaned and sterilized.
Step 6:
Plates are shrink wrapped, stuffed in carton box and shipped.
