The plates have three layers – the top and bottom sections are composed of leaves stitched together with palm fibers and the middle is a carton-like material also made from leaves. The parts are combined without the use of glue or chemical binder, they are simply compressed together with a machine press. The leaves come from a wild vine growing in Asia and South America.


The resulting product is waterproof, microwave-safe plate with a shelf life of approximately a year and a half. It can be used for a variety of foods, from dry snacks to hot soups and stews. The leaf plates can technically be washed and reused.

Once the leaf plates have served their purpose, they can be composted or simply discarded in nature. The leaf plates usually decompose within a month, which is a negligible amount of time compared to the 450 years needed to break down a single plastic plate.

The trash we human produce every year is more than 1 billion tones.

The most part of them are from the packaging plastic waste.
