Leaf Ware: a Great Paper Plate Alternative

When I started planning our switch to a plastic free and paper free kitchen I started researching products that would help us make a smooth transition. I was messing around with google one day and came across this really cool company: Leafware. They provide a great alternative to paper and plastic plates. One thing that I love about them is that they are are compostable. You can just rinse them after you use them and toss them in the compost.

Their mission is create disposable, environmentally friendly dinnerware for contemporary use. They are sustainably produced from fallen leaves and the company provides jobs for many families in the small communities of South Asia.

Leafware sent me some plates to try out and they are great. I was really happy with how sturdy they are. So far they have held up without any problems for spaghetti and Chinese food. They are so stylish that I hate to toss them in the compost. I mean seriously, how freakin cute are these heart plates. Wouldn’t that be a fun eco-friendly way to go for disposable plates at an anniversary party or even a wedding?

I love Leafware and there are so many fabulous things about the company. In fact, you have a chance to win some Leafware and find out for yourself how fantastic it is.

  1. I learned from the website how leafware is made- from fallen leaves sundried then sterilized and then go to your table to eat upon! How cool is that?!

  2. I learned that “Disposable Leafware products are made from naturally shed leaves. Fallen leaves are collected, pressure washed, scrubbed, sun dried, compressed and then sterilized to produce an eco-friendly, versatile & elegant dinnerware.” that is awesome! lmmarzilli at gmail dot com
