Eco, Elegant & Easy for Earth Day: Palm Leaf Dinnerware

Celebrate Earth Day this year by throwing monotonous housework out the window. Not literally, but if you care about the environment but don’t care for washing dishes, bio-degradable dinner plates made from palm leaves are the answer.

Palm Leaf Plates are an ideal product for anyone who is environmentally conscious, stylish, or doesn't like doing the dishes... or a perfect combination of all three.

April 22 is Earth Day, a day dedicated to inspire awareness of, and appreciation for, the environment. It’s an opportunity to make resolutions, gather friends for environmental restoration, and really—a good excuse to throw a party!

Have some friends over, create positive awareness and when it comes time to eat—serve delicious food on Palm Leaf plates. A perfect substitute for paper or plastic plates (or real plates on nights when you may not feel up for washing dishes), Palm Leaf dinnerware is natural, renewable and made with biodegradable raw palm sheaths.

“Using palm leaf dinnerware in lieu of paper, plastic or styrofoam is an action that will be easy to continue implementing long after Earth Day has passed, it’s a simple step that can make a big impact,” said Justin Marx, CEO of Marx Foods. “Plus, the plates are really cool and make for a great presentation—I used them for my Earth Day party last year and they were a big hit.”
