VerTerra: Dinnerware from Fallen Leaves

Image_1255114809Image_1255114855

 

Dinnerware made from palm tree leaves. How cool is that?

“Our environmentally-friendly plates, bowls and serving dishes are made only from two products: fallen leaves and water. They’re non-toxic, biodegradable, compostable, durable, lightweight, convenient and downright stylish”

“Our production process is simple and transparent: After collecting fallen leaves that would normally be burned, we apply steam, heat and pressure to transform the leaves into durable products that will naturally compost in 2 months.

VerTerra products are made in South Asia, where our employees receive fair wages in safe working conditions and are provided access to health care.”
