Those who know me, are very well aware of the fact that I am a social birdie. Having said that, I love having friends over at home, and cooking delicacies for them. From starters to desserts, I love preparing everything at home from scratch. And since we have a self-imposed “no-maid” policy, me along with my husband take turns in doing the dishes after the guests leave. This becomes tiring to some extent, yet we still love having people over at our place. We did think about using disposable plates to serve food for our guests, but the quality of the ones available at super markets failed to impress me. The plastic ones look extremely cheap (plus they are harmful to our health and environment), while the thermocol plates are very fragile and break easily. It becomes inconvenient for the guests to enjoy the food served in those plates. So our good old Corelle plates enjoyed their monopoly in entertaining the food for our guests. Then one fine day, I discovered Greenfare Eco-friendly Solutions. There was something about this brand that struck me. When I got a chance to review their products on TicTalkToe, I was super thrilled. The products arrived safely packed in a cling wrap.
Greenfare was started by Ms. Harsha Sharma, whose love for mother Earth gave birth to the brand. Greenfare urges to shop with them for eco-friendly alternatives. Their products are made of naturally fallen Areca leaves (Tall tropical Palm Tree bearing Nuts popularly known as “Supari”). Naturally fallen? Yes, the leaves are never plucked out of the trees. So no harm to the environment!

The naturally fallen leaves were collected & cleaned with fresh water before manufacturing the plates. There are no chemicals used in any of the process.

What a thought provoking brand! One must appreciate the thought behind this noble initiative.
The brand manufactures tableware such as Serving Plates, Plates, Bowls, Spoons, Food Box with Lid (For keeping the food safe in the fridge), Compartment Plates, Paper Straw, Bagasse Compartment Food Plates and Cups. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes and I particularly loved their heart-shaped plates.
For reviewing, I used the food box with lid to store some leftover fried rice and chilli chicken in the fridge. Next morning, I took it out of the fridge and heated it up in the microwave. Yes, the heat did not alter the nature or character of the tableware in any manner. The gravy of the dish did not spill from the corners of the plate. The spoon was very easy to handle and was extremely sturdy. I even tried bending the plate with a bit of pressure, but it regained it’s original form. So quality wise, a big big THUMBS UP from my end. The tableware have inconsistent patterns and colours, but that is very natural considering that they are not chemically treated in any manner. Also, the square serving plate featured below was too big to fit into my microwave, but the round ones did not have any such issues. So make sure you choose your tableware wisely.
