Purchasing Compostable Tableware.

Want to use disposable tableware?

As a part of our zero waste policy we strongly encourage renters to chose traditional glasses, plateware, and silverware for their dinners, as washing and reusing traditional dishware has the smallest environmental impact. If renting traditional tableware is cost prohibitive for you, then we recommend purchasing tableware from us that we will compost along with your food scraps on site when you are finished with your event.

After much research we decided using palm leaf plates, bowls, and flatware was the best choice environmentally. Areca palm tree fronds are so naturally rigid that the plateware is made with no adhesives or additives, it is simply steam heated and pressed into shape. The trees regularly drop leaves so no trees are cut down in the process. The plates do not require a commercial composting facility and leave no chemical residues on our farm. And perhaps equally important to renters, palm leaf plates are the most chic and beautiful disposable plateware on the market! They are sturdier and less likely to leak than other disposable wares.

We buy in bulk, bundle them into a convenient package, and store on site to save any headaches in coordination. We've found this system is a win-win for renters, for us and for the environment, as you can order the exact number of units you need to reflect your guest count and avoid surplus costs and materials.


A tableware unit includes:

  • 10"x 10" square palm leaf plate

  • 6" x 6" square palm leaf bowl

  • Palm leaf fork

  • Palm leaf knife

  • Palm leaf spoon

  • A compostable, white, 12 oz hot/cold cup

  • A bamboo napkin


$2.00 per unit

(example, 120 guests/units x 2.00 = $240)


If you choose compostable plateware from elsewhere, that's absolutely fine! We did, however, want to let you know that not all compostable cups are the same. Commercially compostable items don't work here because it takes an extremely high heat for many, many years to break down. Our rule of thumb is that if it looks like plastic, it acts like plastic. So compostable cups that look like paper would be the best in our composting system if you want to go the compostable route. Anything that says "compost in a commercial facility" will not be able to be thrown in our compost bin here. We're including a photo for reference-these kinds of cups do not work since we don't have a commercial facility. Thanks for working with us on this!
