Sustainable, Beautiful, Energy Efficient, Food Safe
Sourced from Areca Nut Plantations, Areca trees shed roughly 8-10 leaves per year. These Palm leaf plates are made from those. The leaves fall to the ground and are taken to a factory where they are washed using high pressure spring water. 80% of the water used to clean the leaves is diverted back to production processes for reuse.
The shaping process involves the leaf being prossed and heated to 180*C (also doubles as heat sterilisation). The pressed leaves are then checked, sent for edging and UV sterilisation. The offcuts are used to make smaller bowls, so there is very little waste. Final scraps are used as compost to fertilise the same trees they fell from. The tableware is then treated just prior to packaging using a Photohydrionization process. This non penetrating, chemical free, ionizing UV radiation is a very effective food grade sanitation method.
