What Sustainability needs today?

Sustainability aims at avoidance or reduction of depletion of natural resources to maintainecological balance.

Current Global Sustainability Needs

1. Protection of Trees

  • Production of Paper & Wood products is depleting forest reserves and impacting biodiversity
  • Exhaustion of forests and trees are causing impact to natural vegetation for animal habitat

2. Conservation of Water & Energy resources

  • The global water scarcity problem is growing aggressively
  • It is estimated by experts that by 2030, under an average economic growth scenario, global water requirements would grow from 4500 billion cubic metres to 6900 billion cubic metres causing an under supply situation of over 40%*
  • This would mean depleting water levels and higher need of renewable water supply

3. Manufacturing products & Creation solutions which are less resource intensive

  • In the global use of conventional dinnerware alone, consumption of water & energy resources hold a prominent share due to dish-washing requirements
  • Combined with dish-washing is the carbon emission as an outcome of using a dish-washing machine
  • The average dishwasher uses 6 gallons of water per cycle; the average Energy Star-rated dishwasher uses 4 gallons per cycle, and their energy use ranges from 1.59 kWh per load down to 0.87 kWh per load. Using the Department of Energy's carbon dioxide emissions numbers of 1.34 pounds of CO2 per kWh, that's 1.16 to 2.13 pounds of carbon dioxide emitted per load, to go along with 4 gallons of water. (Source: 2030 Water Resources Group)
  • Additionally, recycling needs of sewage and drainage water are driving rise in recycling costs for country governments across the globe. At the same time, every recycling requires significant amount of energy, that leads to carbon emissions

4. Products that are renewable in nature, can be either recycled or that do not cause damage to environment upon degradation

  • Problem of Plastics & Thermo-Foam disposable products that are clogging water bodies and soil causing environment pollution & biodiversity risks*
  • Half of the 300 million tonnes of plastic produced every year is ‘single use’ i.e. disposable (Source: Marine Stewardship Council)
  • Plastic pollution poses huge risks for marine & land animals; they end up consuming plastic as part of their food chain
  • Bring down costs incurred by Government Administrations towards recycling

  • There are at least 5+ trillion pieces of plastic in the global oceans
  • With another 8+ million tonnes entering the water chain every year
  • By 2050, the oceans could contain more plastic than fish if plastic is not arrested
  • The Garbage Patch in the Pacific Ocean is now 3 times the size of France
  • It contains 1.8 trillion pieces of plastic
  • It is the largest accumulation of plastic in the world
  • 84% of the plastic found in the Garbage Patch had at least 1 toxin on the surface
  • The Great Garbage Patch threatens all life in the Ocean

How can Palm Leaf Dinnerware meet these needs?

Using Naturally Fallen Leaf to create chain of Sustainability, which otherwise would biodegrade into the soil of origin farm

1. How does use of Palm Leaf Dinnerware protect Trees?

  • Fallen Leaves being used without cutting of trees
  • No harm to trees or forest reserves, thereby retaining biodiversity benefits 

2. How does use of Palm Leaf Dinnerware help conserve Water & Energy resources?

  • Usage of these natural disposable dinnerware replaces the need of dish-washing of crockery at gatherings, events, parties thereby saving water
  • Water saved in Washing directly reduces recycling needs of water and energy needed to recycle water 

3. How is use of Palm Leaf Dinnerware less resource intensive?

  • No additives or compounds are used in manufacturing of these products
  • Making them 100% natural leaf products
  • With minimal use of water resources restricted to washing of collected fallen leaves
  • Manufacturing process is only limited to imparting shape and size molds. Except this, all of the processes are handcrafted, driving water & energy resources savings 

4. How does Palm Leaf Dinnerware help save the Environment?

  • Retention of natural leaf properties in its creation process
  • Biodegradable
  • Compostable
  • Replaces plastic & thermo-foam disposable products which are the biggest threat to environment
  • Goes back to nature with zero impact
  • Protects air, soil & oceans; protects ecosystem & biodiversity

Driving future Sustainability through Palm Leaf

Palm Leaf Dinnerware will continue to have increasing importance in eco-friendly disposable dinnerware, estimated to lead to a global sustainability scenario like below:

  • If Palm Leaf dinnerware consumption increases

  • It would mean gradual replacement of plastic & thermo-foam disposable dinnerware consumption, which currently pose the biggest threat to the environment

  • Which would eventually replace plastic & thermo-foam disposable dinnerware in the consumption chain

  • Finally achieving plastic & thermo-form disposable dinnerware to be even out of the global recycling chain completely
