Product Review: Palm Leaf Plates from Marx Foods
I'm not here to show off the grilled veggies tossed in olive oil and fresh herbs...
I'm not even going to talk about this smooth, creamy ice cream...
drizzled in honey and sprinkled with sea salt...
These babies are durable as all get-out! Not even the sloppiest of sloppy joes or the warm olive oil could penetrate these rustic beauties.
Case in point. DQ demonstrates your flimsy run-of-the-mill paper plate after holding said items. Sad.
These Palm plates are made from "freshly fallen, naturally discarded sheaths of the leaves of the Adaka palm tree." They're not savagely ripped from the tree while still alive...no trees are chopped down (they come from a non-timber forest!). The leaves are naturally shedded, then collected and then hand-washed, stretched & flattened. To read about the entire process at Marx foods, simply click here.
So, give your hard-working hands a day of relaxation and relief with these rockin' Palm Leaf Plates from Marx Foods...and they come in all kinds of rockin' shapes & sizes...plus, there's bowls, dishes, and utensils! I think they are absolutely perfect for adding a touch of rustic elegance to any picnic or outdoor gathering. Or indoor. Go wild.

*Marx Foods sent me these plates to try...free of cost...but the opinions expressed on this page are all mine. Mine, I say!
