Our product is made out of fallen leaves which are of no use in general.
So, this usage gives our product its uniqueness. If these leaves are not
used, it simply decomposes or being thrown into pit. We collect these
fallen leaves and mould them to be used as dinnerware. The best,
elegant looking dinnerware which is eco-friendly too. After one use, it
can be dumped into a pit which decomposes itself in 7-10 days.
Our products are 100% natural, biodegradable, compostable, oven safe,
water-resistant, refrigerator safe and can hold both types of liquids hot
& cold. Since no food or liquid reacts when in use is the best attribute of
Areca leaf products are safe in all Microbiological Testing (like Plate
count within acceptable limit for food contact, No Presence of E-Coli,
and no presence of Fungus). The products do not contain any heavy
metal which is confirmed through laboratory test for each consignment.
Additionally, our products pass successfully the Compostable Testing.

Test: Before shipping, the container is fumigated and tested for safety. To be exported, the test must be passed.
BIODEGRADABILITY & COMPOSTABILITY TESTING
* ASTM D-6866
Test: Biological material testing
Purpose: Are the products completely natural without any additives,
plastics, waxes or glues?
* ASTM D-6868 and ASTM D-6400
Test: Speed and ability to be composted.
Purpose: The standard for this test is 60% in 90 days. Areca leaf products are composted 150% above the standard in 2/3 the time.
Our products are good source of organic manure. Their approximate
composition is N2 (0.94 per cent); P2O5 (0.096 per cent) and K20 (1.00
per cent). The compost mixed with our products acts as a fertilizer,
enhancing plant growth. It becomes high quality compost. The above
testing will prove that the Areca leaves products are completely
biodegradable and compostable in nature.
However, these testings have to be done by the client.
