How to have a Sustainable Thanksgiving with little clean up?

I get it. We all love thanksgiving. We love the friends, the turkey, and the conversations. No one likes the clean up though. It is time consuming and difficult to do especially now that the covid restrictions are slowly starting to be lifted. You can expect at least ten people to clean up for this Thanksgiving, if you are lucky.  Many of us have switched over to disposable plates to reduce the massive amount of clean up work. It is definitely easier that way. Then we realized that it is bad for the environment, throwing away all that plastic waste. 

Even the paper plates nowadays are lined with plastic. It is ridiculous and seems unavoidable. Regardless, some of us still use disposable plates. We have enough problems to deal with. We need a break. That being said, we do not do this without the guilt in the back of our minds. “Darn, I wish I didn’t have to throw away this much plastic in the landfill.” It is true, it sucks.

Wait, hold the phone!?!

There is finally a guilt free solution to this problem. The savior is compostable palm plates. Alright, What exactly are palm plates??

Palm Plates are disposable, chemical free, plates that are made from the fallen leaves of the Areca Palm tree. They are disposable and will break down in soil after 60 days. They are sourced from the leaves of 60+  year old trees, making them extremely sturdy. You can even put liquids in them and they will hold. Use these plates and compost them in your yard waste for the easiest clean up ever.









Here are what people are saying about palm plates:

  • Extremely sturdy/Durable
  • Leak proof
  • No Chips or Bends
  • Amazing Rustic Look (Great for Parties)
  • Sustainable/Guilt Free
  • compostable/biodegradable
  • Convenient/Disposable
