That's the true beauty of SiriDepot Areca leaf based plates. You can compost them either in home compost or in local composting facilities. If you don't have home compost but have a garden/ back yard, you could just break the plates up and bury them. If none of these options are available to you, just dispose them with your regular garbage and the foodware - will naturally biodegrade in 6-8 weeks. It is also a very healthy fodder for livestock. Cow & sheep loves our Areca plates.
All SiriDepot Areca plates are made from palm leaves that are naturally shed, home compostable, fully biodegradable and contain NO chemical or toxins. It's a perfect example of the cradle to cradle concept. Try and experience it, so you can be the judge.
The three-step process is as simple as the product:
- Fallen palm leaves are collected and washed thoroughly.
- The leaves are placed in a heat press and stamped into shape.
- The plates are cut into the finished shape and size and trimmed.
