Plastic and styrofoam is everywhere. In shopping bags, clothing, jars of personal care products, containers to store dry foods, plates to microwave food in, bottles to drink water from…the list is endless. Plastic pollution may well be one of the greatest environmental challenges of our time. The theme for World Environment Day 2018 - Beat Plastic Pollution - was a call to action for everyone to band together and kick plastic out from our lives.
But, despite the awareness, it’s not really happening. The world produces 500 million tons of plastic and styrofoam at this time and will double 2020. Not many people realize that plastic can – apart from ravaging the environment – be carcinogenic.
India produces over a million tons of areca nut every year. The tree sheds its leaves, which could be tapped to make biodegradable and sturdy crockery. These products would be 100 percent recyclable, unlike the “compostable plastics” that have 30 percent plastic content. Areca leaf plates are made naturally without using any chemicals. No artificial materials are used to enhance the strength of final products. The leaf products neither react with food nor spoil taste of the food. The leak proof areca leaf plates are available in different shapes and sizes and can resist in hot and cold temperature.
Suitable for all types of food including hot, wet and oily foods such as curries and stews.
