Our plates are made from naturally shed Areca palm leaves; we don't separate them from the trees. These leaves are typically considered agricultural waste by farmers and disposed of. Once collected, the leaves are pressure washed, dried and heat pressed into desired shapes. That's it! No chemicals are used. And since the material composition of the plates is nothing more than dried leaves, they are compostable and biodegradable.
