You may have seen it before: disposable products made from palm leaves. But what exactly is palm leaf? And is it sustainable? In this article, we'll tell you everything you need to know about palm leaf and disposable products made from it.
How are palm leaf disposables made?
Palm leaf products are made from the waste that is produced during the growth process of palm trees. This waste consists of the leaves that have fallen from the tree. The palm tree loses its leaves several times a year during growth. The leaves are then collected, washed, and dried. The dried leaves are eventually formed into beautiful bowls and plates. Previously, nothing was done with the fallen leaves, or they were even burned. This is a shame because the material has many possibilities.
What are the benefits of palm leaf?
Working with palm leaf has many advantages. Palm leaf tableware can withstand heat and cold, making it suitable for use in the oven, microwave, refrigerator, and freezer.
