Wooden cutlery and palm leaf plates by eco-gecko

The products:  Our disposable, biodegradable, and compostable wooden cutlery is 100% natural and is made of birch wood while our eco-friendly palm leaf plates and bowls are made from fallen palm leaves. These wooden knives can cut steak, and the wooden forks can handle salads. Eco-Gecko disposable cutlery and tableware all work well with hot or cold foods. There are no coatings, waxes, or chemicals of any sort added to our naturally beautiful tableware. Therefore, all of our disposable tableware products are free of toxicants and are accepted at all composting facilities on the basis of being composed of completely organic material.

wooden forks, knives, and spoons The reason:  Biodegradable and compostable wooden cutlery and palm leaf tableware by Eco-Gecko were designed to provide an eco-friendly alternative to the non-biodegrading disposable plastic cutlery and Styrofoam plates used so commonly in the food industry. Not only are these disposable petroleum-based utensils, plates, and bowls not biodegradable or compostable, but they often end up in landfills, polluting oceans, or even killing animals when they mistake these for food.

The “eco”:  Just how eco-friendly is our disposable tableware? Eco-Gecko disposable wooden cutlery are made from FSC-certified birch wood. What does this mean? It means that the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) recognizes and certifies that the methods of harvesting and re-planting are being managed sustainably.

FSC® Certified

Eco-Gecko Creation LLC carries
Forest Stewardship Council™
Chain of Custody certification.
FSC certification ensures that wood comes from well-managed forests. Contact us to learn more about our FSC certified products.

As for our palm leaf plates and bowls, it would be hard to find anything more eco-friendly than disposable dinnerware made from fallen palm leaves which in the past would likely have been collected and burned. So not only does using this natural by-product from areca palm trees stop the burning and subsequent polluting of the air, but it also serves as a biodegradable and compostable alternative to plastic and Styrofoam dinnerware. When composted, it also contributes to producing nutrient-rich topsoil.  

In addition to our tableware, the boxes and cartons used to package our biodegradable and disposable cutlery, plates and bowls are made from recycled paper products. Geckos don’t leave footprints, and neither will you when you use wooden disposable cutlery by Eco-Gecko. Kermit had it all wrong… it’s easy being green!

The quality:  The natural beauty and strength of the birch wood makes for stylish yet functional cutlery, as well. So whether you are planning an office party, an outdoor event, a dinner party, or for daily use in your office or restaurant, our biodegradable and compostable wooden cutlery are the perfect utensils for your needs. And since birch is a hardwood, the edges are even smoother than other wooden disposable cutlery on the market, which makes them completely safe for children to use. No toxins, no chemicals, just high-quality disposable tableware… made from natural and renewable resources.
