Environmentally Friendly Products

Through out our catalogue we have a growing range of Environmentally Friendly Products. To make it easier for those who are specifically interested in these products we have duplicated them into this separate listing. This list contains the products that are labelled as Environmentally Friendly as well as some other items that are regularly sold to Environmentally Friendly businesses. A majority of our Environmentally Friendly Products are sold as cartons only. Once a product becomes popular we will start to sell it as a sleeve. We are mindful of not having degradable products sitting on the shelf for an extended period of time.The Environmentally Friendly Products that are listed here are not the exhaustive list of products available. We have a whole range of products that we can order in for you. We have samples and a catalogue that we can share with you. You are welcome to call into our Showroom and Warehouse in at Unit 4/ 62 Hoopers Road, Kunda Park  or arrange with us to have our Sales Rep visit with samples at a convenient time to you.

 What is PLA? The PLA bio plastic that is used in the deli bowls, cups etc is made from dextrose (sugar) that is derived from field corn. This material is used to produce the range of bioplastic coffee cup lids, clear cups, deli containers and water-proof coating on paper cups and bowls. It uses 75% less greenhouse gases than the oil-based PET plastic it replaces.

What is Biocane? It is made from crushed stalks remaining after the juice has been extracted from sugarcane. It is used to produce a range of plates, bowls, clamshells and takeaway containers. It is microwave safe and oven proof up to 220 c for 20 mins. refrigerator and freezer safe. The seal-able containers have a water tight seal and lockable lid as well as being grease and water resistant.

What are the Palm plates made from? These are often called bamboo plates, they are in fact not bamboo but made  from palm fronds. Areca palm leaf disposable plates and bowls are different from other eco-friendly disposables. No trees have to be cut down, no chemicals, resins, dyes or synthetic material are used. The Areca palm leaf plates are totally natural, biodegradable and compostable. Made from the naturally shed palm leaf sheath, these plates are sturdy, leak proof and can withstand hot and cold temperatures. The Areca Palm tree is a tall, beautiful tree, which grows abundantly in South India. The tree has huge leaves, or fronds, which shed and fall to the ground every few weeks. They are then collected, pressure cleaned and sun dried. After they are dry they are heat pressed (which also sterilizes them) to produce the required plate or bowl shapes. Each palm leaf varies in colour, texture and thickness, so you will find that our products vary in thickness, colour and pattern too. Each plate is handmade with care and is as unique as the individual leaf it comes from. After inspection they are packed and ready for the end user. Great for when you want that point of difference at a function.
