A nobleman once said: “If you cannot RECYCLE or REUSE, then quickly REFUSE”, whereupon we get the thought of how harmful the usage of plastics is often to the mother earth and even worse for the people living in it. Plastics mostly contribute to heating and create an area of high concern for one and all. Usually, when plastic is dumped in landfills, it interacts with water and forms hazardous chemicals and they degrade the water quality. The wind carries and deposits plastic from one place to another, increasing the land litter. This has made a high-risk impact on our lives and existence. The usage of plastic tableware as per tradition has been a way of inclination towards the hazardous happenings for the mere future.
Given the outbreak of the covid-19 second wave in the country, it is critical to preserve food cleanliness. As a result, the use of areca leaf plates has been proposed as a remedy to this eating problem. Areca leaf plates, also known as areca nut leaf plates, are high-quality biodegradable plates made from areca leaves. Areca leaf bowls and plates are made by collecting the best specimens of areca leaves that cover areca fruits and using them to make these products. The benefit of utilizing areca leaf plates, bowls, and eating utensils is that they don’t contain any chemicals, making them completely safe for all users. These goods are made using a detailed and comprehensive manufacturing procedure. The tableware will compost organically in about two months, and it will decompose naturally in another two or three months.
According to various resources, Prakritii Cultivating Green is doing its part to help the environment by supplying organic tableware that is non-toxic, easy to use, and 100 percent eco-friendly. According to a recent survey, more than half of the world’s population believes that using organic dinnerware provides opportunities for a brighter future. For a safer and better experience, several brands and hotels are now relying on eco-friendly disposables firms. People now have access to genuine information. Environmentally sustainable solutions are critical for the hospitality business, which is committed to making responsible decisions. Plastic-free disposables are becoming more popular in hotels.
People are becoming more interested in using organic tableware, which is beneficial to the environment. Therefore, they aren’t ready to consume their coffee or tea out of reusable tumblers. We also believe that using reusables during COVID-19 is dangerous. As a result, we’ve switched to using organic dinnerware and different variables in eating.
Solid waste management activists, on the other hand, who were at the forefront of the movement away from disposables, say that this is only one step ahead and two steps backward for the city in terms of long-term solutions. We believe that using organic tableware is the best solution for the environment as well as for humanity in these times,” the activist says.
