Packnwood is commited to creating stylish tableware while preserving the planet. That is why we use organic, ecologically-safe and recyclable materials whenever possible.
Here are some of the natural resources that make our fashionable plates, trays and other products :
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet, growing as large as 24 inches every day. Needing very little water to do so and absolutely zero chemicals. It is 100% biodegradable. One of our most popular materials, we turn it into sturdy and stylish serving dishes, spoon and baskets. **
Sugar cane, also called Pulp or Bagasse, comes from the natural residue of the sugarcane harvest. Previously this material was considered useless and destroyed, but our design team has been able to find several good uses for it. 100% biodegradable and compostable. **
Once it is converted to a thermoplastic polyester known as PLA, corn starch is strong just like regaular plastic only it is completely compostable. Though, it can't withstand high temperatures, PLA is a versatile material that can be used in a variety of ways.**
Packnwood cultivates the best wood from specially curated forests located all over the world. We systematically grow our trees to make our products and we replace every tree we use. Whether it is birch, poplar or pinewood, our extensive line of wood products will add a smooth and sophisticated touch to your tableware presentation. **
Polyethylene terephthalate, or PET is a recycled plastic made from fossil fuels like natural gas that we use to make bottles and other transparent products. PET continues to be recyclable, ensuring that the material is sustainable and leaves the smallest possible footprint on the environment.
We can make elegant and eco-friendly bowls and plates just by collecting the sheaths of a palm tree, which naturally dry, fall, and regenerate all on their own. Our palm sheathes are always cleaned in fresh spring water, and the the remains are totally renewable. The best part is we don't ever have to cut down a single tree! **
Our cardboard and paper products are natural and recyclable, and are an affordable green alternative to plastic.
** All of these materials are conform to norm EN13432 of the European Biodegradability Standard.
