FAQ

Frequently asked questions

How are Palm Leaf plates made?


The leaves that fall naturally on the ground are collected and washed with fresh water to remove dirt and dust. The leaves are then heat pressed into the desired shapes and sizes. Finally, the Palm leaf plates are cleaned, sterilized, and packaged.




Where do you produce your products (get the leaves)?


Our dinnerware from fallen leaves/palm leaf plate line is produced in India--there are no leaves in North America that work for this process.




Are they reusable and can they be washed?


While they are very durable, they are a disposable product and recommended for single use only. If they were only used for light, dry snacks, it may be possible to wipe with damp cloth. Prolonged submersion in water will cause them to soften, as they are purely natural and not treated with any protective coatings.




Are any chemicals or coatings used in the manufacturing of these plates?


No chemicals or additives are used in manufacturing the plates. Only water and heat is used throughout the process.




Why does product colour and thickness look different from one item to another?


The leaf is completely natural, therefore color variations are normal reflection of this. Since products are not treated with any chemicals or additives, the original colours remain in the products.




How strong are Palm Leaf Plates?


Our products are very strong and possibly the strongest & toughest disposables currently available on the market.
