Palm Leaf Plates & Bowls

Palm Leaf tableware range

Want an attractive alternative to your standard plastic and paper plates? Our fully compostable palm leaf tableware range, which includes plates, platters and bowls may be the solution you’re looking for…

What is a palm leaf plate or bowl?

As you can probably guess from the name, our palm leaf plates, bowls and platters are made from palm leaves. Palm leaves from the Areca palm tree in India to be precise! Almost 60 billion palm leaves fall to the ground every year from these trees! Once collected, the leaves are washed in locally sourced spring water and heat-pressed to make food packaging. The heat makes the products ready to eat from – and they keep their toughness until they are ready to go back into the soil when you compost them.

From leaves, to packaging, to compost – it truly is a closed loop!

Our palm leaf range is:

√ 100% Compostable (will break down within 12 weeks in an industrial composting facility)
√ Microwave safe
√ Available as bowls, plates, platters and dip bowls – in a variety of shapes and sizes
√ Suitable for hot, cold and wet food
√ Free from chemicals
√ Each item looks unique (due to a variation in the palm leaves’ size and colour)
