Conscience-friendly dinnerware like this will make you want to eat al fresco more often. These eco-friendly disposable plates are crafted from palm leaves that have already been sloughed naturally from the tree. We bring mother nature's gift of guilt-free dinnerware to you. Each leaf we gather is thoroughly cleaned, heat pressed, hand shaped and fully sterilized. What you get is sturdy enough for multiple uses, and elegant enough for gatherings with company. This 8" round plate is versatile enough to carry steaks, burgers, sandwiches, or a whole smorgasbord. We never use chemicals or binders in the creation of our eco-friendly disposable plates made from palm leaves.
