Earth Restored’s completely recyclable range of tableware and food packaging is especially designed for consumers and businesses who care about the wellbeing of our planet.
Like most of us, our founder Maxwell Madoda has always been concerned about environmental issues. However, it wasn’t until he talked with his children about climate change, plastic pollution, and all the other planet-related concerns that were keeping them awake at night, that Maxwell became determined to find his own unique solution to one of the world’s biggest environmental problems. A solution he called Earth Restored.
For all the strides that are being made to address the climate change crisis, everything is still moving far too slowly. One of the greatest challenges we must overcome is the astronomical amount of unnecessary waste produced by the global food industry.
In the UK alone, households, food manufacturers, hospitality and food service providers and the retail and wholesale sectors generate around 9.5 million tonnes of waste a year at a cost of over £19 billion per annum, which equates to more than 25 million tonnes of greenhouse emissions.1 It’s the greenhouse emissions that accumulate in the atmosphere and are the major cause of global warming and climate change.
Earth Restored’s sustainable, compostable, and recyclable range of tableware and food packaging is one small but important way we can all help solve this dilemma. Not only do our products address the key concerns of climate change, food waste, and plastic pollution, they’re also high-quality, hard-wearing, and designed to look great in any dining situation.
For obvious reasons, it’s better to use sustainable resources than it is to consume finite raw materials. That’s why we produce all our products from areca palm leaves, which are recovered from the ground after falling naturally from the tree. After the leaves are dried, cured, and heat-pressed into shape they’re thoroughly cleaned with fresh, running water.
Because they’re made from palm leaves, our products will always remain strong and durable (and not turn soggy like most other disposable tableware) and their attractive grain and texture is entirely natural. We’ve also been very careful to ensure that no chemicals, glues, or other additives are involved in the manufacturing process, and we offset all emissions that our packaging causes.
It’s obvious that we can’t leave it to government and big business to heal our planet for us. We all need to ‘be the difference’ if we’re going to create a healthier, happier, more successful future for ourselves and our children. The wellbeing of our world is in our hands, and – when you choose Earth Restored products – it’s quite literally in your hands too.
That, in a nutshell (or, rather, a palm leaf!) is what Earth Restored is all about.
