Bamblu's Palm Leaf dinnerware is biodegradable, compostable, disposable and washable (cannot immerse in water). They are completely organic, made of fallen palm leaves from the areca palm tree and the first palm leaf dinnerware to earn the USDA certified biobased product certification and label in July, 2012.
Perfect for everyday use, your backyard barbeque, picnics, catered events and weddings. The bowls can hold hot soup or ice cream. Stylish, beautiful, and strong made from a completely renewable resource, they are a chic alternative to china dishes and unfriendly disposable tableware. They are designed for one use, but they may be washed a few times, too. How many times really depends on how you use them. Refrigerator, freezer and heat safe.
100% natural, only fallen palm leaf and water are used in the process of making pressed leaf plates and bowls. Once collected, they are pressure washed, scrubbed, sundried, and compressed. Any surplus is utilized without any waste. No coatings, waxes, or chemicals added to the surface of the plates and bowls. Finally, all are sterilized to produce non-toxic eco-friendly tableware. Only water is used in the shaping and sterilizing process, which means our palm leaf plates are completely free of harmful chemicals and toxicants. Excess water is used for agriculture and leftover pieces of leaves are composted and put back into the agriculture.
As far as we know, all manufacturing of palm leaf dinnerware is only in India. In the past, these palm leaves would likely have been collected and burned. So using this natural by-product from areca palm trees stops the burning and subsequent polluting of the air. Bamblu's Palmware is becoming one of America's most desireable eco-friendly tableware solutions.
When you are finished with them, they may be home composted, taken to a composting facility, or given to a local farm to be fed to cows or sheep. It's true, cows and sheep have been known to love them. When composted, they continue to contribute to our planet by helping to produce nutrient-rich topsoil.
You will find that Bamblu's palmware is reasonably priced and extremely worth it. Our wide selection includes round plates and bowls, rectangular plates, square plates, and even heart shaped plates. Colors and shapes have slight variations.
