Eco-Gecko sustainable heart-shaped palm leaf plates are an environmentally-friendly way to serve your culinary creations with a little bit of romance and whimsy. They are 100% natural, biodegradable, and compostable. Each plate is made out of renewable fallen palm leaves. In addition to its natural beauty, this material breaks down quickly in landfills and composters for further recycling of a great natural resource. The plate is extremely strong but still meant for one use, so it is completely disposable.
