Defined as style, function, and sustainability

maaterra is for those times when you want to show that you're confident in your taste, care about the environment, and want others to be aware and care too.

Our process, from collection through manufacturing to compostability, has a minimal environmental impact. Made from fallen palm leaves which are cleaned with water and light, molded with heat, and etched, our plates are simply a leaf. 

FAQ

Are maaterra plates compostable?

Yes. maaterra plates have been certified “composter approved” by the Compost Manufacturing Alliance, a leader in creating the most practical model for advancing the use of compostables and their acceptance into industrial compost facilities.

What does it mean when you say each plate is “unique”?

We see perfection in the uniqueness of each plate. Unlike other disposable plates which go through a process of breaking down the materials and manipulating them with dyes, glues, and finishes in order to form the plates, we opt for the purest, most sustainable processing. While we go through a rigorous process of choosing the cleanest, most consistently colored, minimally marked leaves, we also embrace the idea that no two leaves are created identical.

We see beauty in the uniqueness of each plates marking. Speckling, striping, and changes in texture may appear on a plate. We call the effect, “perfectly imperfect”.

How do you make your plates?

We harm no trees during our process because we harvest fallen leaves. We clean the leaves with water and UV light. We mold them with heat and pressure. We etch them instead of adding inks. And since they are 100% compostable, when you leave your table, you also leave no trace. maaterra plates are simply a leaf.

Nice touch at our event

I loved using the plates at a recent fund raiser for our school. We had the school logo on the plates, which looked great, but they are also very sturdy and compostable. The maaterra team was great to work with.

Really love the product!

I used maaterra plates recently with friends and the response was overwhelming positive. They loved the designs and the sturdiness. One comment was that normal disposable plates usually don’t do well holding the food we were eating but the maaterra plates held up great. Many said they would use these at picnics/BBQs/outdoor events, etc. Really love the product.
