From palm leaf to disposable tableware
The plantations from where the raw materials of our palm leaf tableware originate are not cultivated for this purpose. In India, areca palms are primarily cultivated because of their small fruits called betel nuts. Since there is almost no interest in betel nuts far away from home, no rainforests need to be cut down to make room for large palm plantations. During its growth, the areca palm loses its leaves several times a year. Normally, these leaves decompose on the ground or they are burned. During dry season, the leaves can also be collected in order to process them further. First, leaves with high quality are selected and then washed, bundled, and dried. With a small amount of residual moisture, the leaves are manually pressed into palm leaf plates and palm leaf bowls with the aid of pressure and heat. In further handcraft, the tableware is deburred, polished, and packed. In order to keep CO2 emissions as low as possible, palm tableware is shipped in bundled orders in containers.
Palm leaf dinnerware: sustainable and compostable
From the beginning of plant growth, the palm plantations are cultivated without the use of pesticides and fungicides. The water that is used to wash the palm leaves is collected and then used for the irrigation of plantations. This does not only protect the environment and but also valuable resources. Being a sustainable natural product, palm leaf dinnerware is completely compostable.
Fair cooperation with manufacturers
The manufacturer that produces our eco-friendly palm leaf tableware is able to employ his employees year-round. We put great emphasis on fair and social working conditions and have helped to expand the company's production capacities. A small family business in a garage has turned into a business with numerous yearlong jobs. In order to ensure fair wages and good quality at the same time, we pay fair prices for the palm dinnerware and visit the business personally. Furthermore, our palm leaf products have been certified according to the BSCI standards. The compliance with these standards is regularly controlled by re-audits by an independent, accredited institution.
