Can you believe that? To produce dinnerwear you only need two things: fallen leaves and water. VerTerra shows how, because the company´s environmentally-friendly plates, bowls and serving dishes are made from these two ingredients.
The innovative idea was born from the most simple and unexpected encounter. As his car bumped its way down a dirt road in rural India, Michael Dwork saw a woman soaking leaves in water, then pressing them in a crude waffle iron. She pulled out what looked like a plate and served food on it.
Though he can’t remember what he ate, that simple organic plate started Michael on a journey to refine what he saw that day into a stylish, durable and truly environmentally-friendly line of single-use dinnerware.
Founded on the belief that it’s possible to combine high design with the highest standards of environmental responsibility, VerTerra now redefines what stylish, sustainable and compostable disposable dinnerware can be. The company offers a chic touch of nature to each table.
Durable and versatile the dinnerware is lightweight yet sturdy and stands up to hot foods, hot/cold liquids, the hot sun and can even used to bake in the oven, store in the fridge and reheat in the microwave. And since VerTerra is all-natural there are no concerns about plastics, glues, lacquers, veneers or any toxins to leach into foods.
