Environmental Impact

Areca leaf products are made from the naturally fallen leaves of areca trees that grow in  India. The fallen areca leaves are collected by local people, soaked, cleaned, then heated and moulded into shapes using a press. This removes the moisture and forms the areca leaves into plates.The plates are an environmentally friendly alternative to single-use plastic as they can compost in as little as six to eight weeks, depending on conditions.

The producers work hard to reduce environmental impact in the production process, for example reusing water in a closed loop and encouraging awareness of waste recycling in the local community. Production creates significant social benefits by, for example,  generating income for rural leaf collectors. 70% of collectors are women whose income is spent largely on improved diets and children’s education. Harvesting of areca leaves for production of these products also supports forest conservation by providing an alternative income for rural communities to replace illegal logging and/or wildlife poaching. Additionally, local young people are provided with training in production, which enables them to find employment with production units, or to set up their own unit. Most production units (which each create work for around 4-5 people) are run by men, however Greener Guest’s supplier is fostering female empowerment, by encouraging women to become entrepreneurs and set up smaller household-level production units. With support from its government partners, 350 of these smaller, units are currently being established, 90% of them run by women. In total around 500 young men and 400 women in rural India are working in the external production units and have received training on the job, or are in formal training programmes.

Packaging Disposal Industrially Compostable, Recyclable

Although we are trying hard to find an compostable efficient outer packaging for our leaf products, it has been challenging to get one. But the wrapping used currently on our products is recyclable, where suitable facilities are available.  


Product Disposal Home Compostable, Naturally Biodegradable

Can be composted or broken up and buried. If disposed with regular garbage and food waste the plates will naturally degrade over time. This process uses 90% less energy than recycling.

Disposable Green

DISPOSABLE GREEN® is a brand which takes its roots from the ethics of its founders, Santosh and Sumona, who were raised in a traditional environment where everything was used right up until the end of its life and then recycled. They recognise that the biggest threat to human existence today is harm to environment caused by the speed at which mankind is growing and the unsustainable way resources are being depleted. DISPOSABLE GREEN® Areca leaf products are 100% natural, home compostable and sustainable resource. No trees are cut to make areca leaf products as they are made of naturally fallen leaves, collected by workers from the local community and the company uses 100% renewable resources for manufacturing its products. By making traditionally sustainable products available for use instead of their plastic alternatives, DISPOSABLE GREEN® helps everyone to do their little bit to help the environment.

After presenting our innovative NEXTGEN range to the UK Prime Minister, Mr Johnson confirmed that he would like to work with Disposable Green to find out ways to take further the work which had been done at preliminary stage earlier. He applauded the work of our team and promised to investigate whether the UK Government could provide any support in this hugely important matter.
