Palm leaf dinnerware is made from fallen leaves of Areca palm trees. These trees are found mainly in tropical regions of the Pacific, Asia and parts of East Africa.
The Areca palm trees shed their dried fronds many times a year. The sheaths are collected by local farmers and cleaned with fresh water. While they are still damp, the sheaths are heat pressed and moulded into various forms.
The finished product is dried in sunlight to remove residual moisture. No chemicals or artificial ingredients are used in the manufacturing process. No trees are harmed or cut down.
No binding agents or adhesives used. FOOGO Green is built on a simple vision to bring environmentally sustainable products to everyone's reach.
We offer a wide range of natural products that are a great alternative to plastic disposables. When used, our products degrade naturally and go back to the hands of Mother Nature, where they came from.
The world is full of choices. Some choices are easy, and some aren't. When it comes to protecting our planet from plastic pollution and preventing masses of single use plastic going to landfill, the choice is simple - use products that do not harm or pollute the environment. Please message us for details if needed. Why are there colour variations, dark streaks and splotches on the products?No two leaves are the same, which means no two palm leaf dishes are the same. Each plate/bowl is different with its own unique personality. The colour variations, streaks and splotches are absolutely normal and are due to the natural variations in the leaves. Why does my palm leaf plates and bowls come in plastic packaging? This is a common question many of our customers have. Made from dried leaves, the plates and bowls naturally absorb moisture from the surrounding environment. The plastic packaging prevents the build-up of moisture and hence stop the leaves from getting mouldy. We have tried alternate packaging in the past, but the results have been far from successful. How do palm dishes smell and do they affect the taste of food? We don't use any chemicals to alter the natural properties of the leaves, hence the dishes may have a mild woody scent (the smell of dried palm leaves). Unlike plastic plates, this does not interfere with the smell or taste of food. Note that our palm dishes come pre-washed and treated with heat, so there is no need to wash them before first use.
Are leaf dishes microwave and oven safe? Are they fridge and freezer safe? We have tested leaf dishes in microwave for 2 minutes at 800W and in the oven for 30 minutes at 180-degree C. They could be used at higher temperatures but please be cautious when doing so.
Leaf plates and bowls are fridge and freezer safe. Can I clean and reuse palm leaf products? Palm leaf products are designed for one-time use, however many of our customers have said they have reused them.
The fact that they are so sturdy makes it hard to throw them away after just one use. When used with non-sticky/non-greasy food, the plates and bowls can be wiped clean/washed, dried and reused. All unused products should be stored air-tight, to prevent the leaves from absorbing moisture from air. "Item arrived quickly, no issues, will trade again for sure ".
