Our Story

 

VerTerra Dinnerware is the creator and originator of The Palm Leaf Plate. Dinnerware from Fallen Leaves™ was created in 2006 by CEO Michael Dwork. VerTerra's clean and stylish design has been recognized by the Smithsonian and awarded numerous times by the Natural Products Association, The NY Restaurant Association, and the International Hotel Motel Association. This is the most awarded disposable on the market.

Made of 100% renewable resources and BPI-certified compostable, VerTerra’s Dinnerware From Fallen Leaves™ is the stylishly sustainable alternative to disposable paper and plastic plates. No trees are ever harvested or cut down for this line. No chemicals, waxes, dyes or additives are applied.

We are continuously working to create new products and become even more sustainable than ever before. When we saw how many tree stumps are left by the sawmilling industry we invented a whole new line.

We expanded into our Patented Collapsible Catering box line and Patent pending Cheese and Charcuterie boards line marrying design, functionality, and sustainability.  This line made of balsa wood with a rice paper liner has everything you need for professional caterers or home entertaining:  from 1oz to 10lb containers for a buffet or drop off we have a full selection of items for eco-friendly catering and meal service.
