If You Care, It’s Leafware

Posted on November 26, 2018 by Matt Tomasino There have been 0 comments

Taking what nature gives us and turning it into usable items is a privilege humans have had since the beginning of time. Yet many have trampled on this privilege, taking these resources for granted and producing a stripped, polluted world with no regard for maintaining environmental health.

Thankfully, like-minded folks have pushed against these irresponsible practices and are slowly bringing the pendulum back to sustainable applications and a thriving planet. Leafware is a company that has stepped up to utilize one of the simplest things nature has given us; fallen leaves and other naturally sourced materials.

The Ancient Path

Leafware has followed the forgotten path of ancient peoples who created natural plates, bowls, cups and more from trees, vines, roots, and leaves. Today, the challenge is about getting back to the basics of ancient practices while competing with rows of toxic, plastic choices that pollute our planet.

This is why Leafware has created a sturdy, elegant catalogue of compostable dinnerware, plates, bowls, and cutlery made from fallen palm leaves, birch, and other earth-friendly sources.

A Bountiful Harvest

The fallen leaves that Leafware uses are not your ordinary raked up autumn pile. These are palm leaves which can be very large, even weighing over one hundred pounds and able to completely wrap around an adult body. Leafware uses an Eco-friendly process to manufacture these fallen leaves that includes:

  • Pressure washing
  • Scrubbing
  • Sun drying
  • Compressing
  • Sterilizing
  • Molding

The result is a compilation of unique ‘wooden-like’ designs. Shapes include oblong plates, smooth sophisticated bowls, and birchwood sourced cutlery, creating an earthy backdrop to a simple snack or entree masterpiece.

Believing in a Better Future

Recently, as reported by AP News, The Nobel Prize winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issued a 728 page report detailing (once again) the danger of a warming planet. It’s quite amazing that these reports continue to emerge over the past several decades and so many humans continue to ignore the writing on the wall.

Leafware is one company that has done its part in maintaining a sustainable planet while lowering its carbon footprint at the same time. Rather than create beautiful dinnerware from essential sources such as harvested virgin wood torn out of the ground, Leafware uses what nature has left us without decimating the earth.


Sometimes it is one statement from an influential person that makes many minds “click” into action. For Leafware it is inspiration from the words of non-violent Indian activist, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, who said,

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”

These words ring true in so many ways. Leafware adds,

“Our mission is to provide sustainable, natural products for the benefit of our planet. We believe in offering choices that reduce society's impact on air, water, and soil now and for future generations.”


Before you reach for another plastic, toxically manufactured pack of inexpensive, disposable food containers and cutlery, look into a more Eco-friendly choice like Leafware. It is a decision to support and reverse a rapidly dying planet. One of many opportunities to care again, especially when danger is imminent, unless we act now. Fill your cabinets with unique plates, bowls, trays, platters and more that reflect your higher consciousness and good taste. If you care, it’s Leafware.
