The disposable leaf plates are made with leaves/sheath of betel-nut tree, a palm family which is a renewable source. Hence no trees are cut for manufacturing these products.e betel-nut trees are grown in hilly areas without any assistance of fertilizers and hence there will not be any trace of pesticides in the leaves.
The sheath which primarily protects the betel-nut in the tree falls naturally once it is dried. The fallen leaves are collected fresh from the farm and stored properly.
These leaves were cleaned with fresh water before manufacturing the plates. There are no chemicals/additives used in any of the process. The colors possessed by the areca leaves are natural and have no harm when contact with food.
