It’s no secret that plastic is bad for the environment. Many single-use plastic products take between 20-500 years to fully break down. Plastic is made from oil, a nonrenewable resource and fossil fuel. Switching from oil-based plastic to eco-friendly plastic alternatives would move our whole planet in a much more balanced direction and it’s simpler than we think to stop plastic from destroying the planet.
The increased use of disposable plates over the last decade has changed the way we eat meals but unfortunately its also had a negative impact on our planet. By virtue of being heavy duty and cheap, most disposable plates contain hazardous chemicals and release dangerous pollutants that could lead to diseases, and even cancer.
Palm Leaf Plates are the most eco-friendly disposable plates available today. Also known as palm plates or leaf plates, these plates are hand crafted from the naturally fallen leaf of the Areca Palm tree. They are durable and elegant and can be used for weddings, parties, business events, or even a simple gathering at home.

On top of hiring a caterer and planning out the number of servings you’ll need, you’ve also got to worry about tableware.
