From birthdays to weddings and garden parties to Christmas gatherings, there are a whole host of occasions that require disposable tableware. We are all trying to limit our use of plastics to help save our planet, so why not stun your guests this summer with the beautiful range of Palm Leaf products from the Wholeleaf Company, which are 100% compostable.
Washed in locally sourced spring water, the palm leaves are heat pressed and transformed into a variety of shapes and sizes. The heat makes the products ready to eat from and, once formed, they keep their strength and toughness until they are ready to go back into the soil when composted after the party. This process makes them completely free from any nasty chemicals, bleach and plastic or wax coatings.
Stylish, sturdy and sustainable, The Wholeleaf Company products are an excellent alternative to crockery or disposable plastic. Unlike paper plates, they are durable and suitable for all types of food and liquids – and are both oven and freezer safe. No plate- scraping, washing up or black-sacking. Just pop the lot in your food waste or compost. They are the modern, must-have for any sized event, which both you and the earth enjoy knowing you have avoided plastics. From Palm, to Plate, to Planet.
The contemporary collection of plates, bowls and platters are made from naturally fallen Indian palm leaves, which are a renewable material with almost 60 billion palm leaves falling to the ground in India every year.
Each item is as unique and beautiful as the leaf it came from and orders can be personalised with names and dates for that extra personal touch. Products are well- priced and include: Plates, bowls, platters in various shapes and sizes including hearts and hexagonals with prices starting at just £9.99 for a pack of 25 plates.
Bundle packs are also available such as the Picnic Pack, with a totally Compostable Picnic Box, 25 dinner plates, 25 dessert bowls, 25 sustainably sourced wooden Knives, forks and spoons and 25 compostable cups. Perfect for a family of 4 to have 5 to 6 eco-friendly picnics over the summer. Take a food caddy bag with you and when the picnic’s over, pop all the waste in the bag, carry it home in the box and then feed the bag to a food bin. Reuse and reuse and reuse the box.
Bundle packs are also available for weddings and private parties. Large-scale catering and trade prices available. Check the website for details and pricing.
The Wholeleaf Company are not fresh off the block. They have been championing palm leaf products over plastic since 2007.

Since then, the business has been trusted by many industry names such as Soho House, Big Feastival, Habitat, Abel and Cole, The Roof Gardens, Waitrose, Ocado, Sainsburys, Oxfam, Brakes, Wahaca and The Goring. The Wholeleaf Company were crowned winners of the Best New Product, Natural and Organic Products Awards and were runners up in the HSBC Elevator Pitch Competition.
