FAQ FOR PALM LEAF PLATES
- How are Karmic Seed Palm Leaf plates and other products made?
The leaves that fall naturally on the ground are collected and washed with fresh water to remove dirt and dust. The leaves are then heat pressed into the desired shapes and sizes. Finally, the Palm leaf plates are cleaned, sterilized, and packaged. You can learn more about the process here.
- Where do you produce your products (get the leaves)?
Our dinnerware from fallen leaves/palm leaf plate line is produced in India--there are no leaves in North America that work for this process. We own our factory where all of our workers receive fair wages in safe working conditions and are provided access to medical care.
- Are they reusable and can they be washed?
While they are very durable, they are a disposable product and recommended for single use only. If they were only used for light, dry snacks, it may be possible to wipe with damp cloth. Prolonged submersion in water will cause them to soften, as they are purely natural and not treated with any protective coatings.
- Are Palm Leaf plates made of Palm Oil?
No. Our palm leaf products are made from the leaf of the Areca palm tree. Palm oil, which is linked to mass deforestation, is harvested from a completely different variety of palm tree.
- Are any chemicals or coatings used in the manufacturing of these plates?
No chemicals or additives are used in manufacturing the plates. Only water and heat is used throughout the process.
- Do any trees or leaves get cut in gathering of the raw material?
No. Only naturally fallen, dry leaves are used for manufacturing of these products, which are otherwise waste. The raw material sourced is completely sustainable!
- Why does product colour and thickness look different from one item to another?
The leaf is completely natural, therefore color variations are normal reflection of this. Since products are not treated with any chemicals or additives, the original colours remain in the products.
- Is it safe to put Karmic Seed Products in a microwave, oven, or fridge?
Yes, within reason. Karmic Seed Palm Leaf plates is significantly more durable than plastic or paper plates. It’s perfectly safe to heat our palm leaf plates in the microwave for up to 2 minutes on high or in an oven up to 350 degrees for 45 minutes (making sure they are at least 6" from heat source). You can also store Karmic Seed products in the refrigerator or freezer.
- Can we use the Karmic Seed Palm leaf plates for hot liquid food items?
Yes: liquids, soups and anything else you can cook up! Just look through our Instagram or online photo galleries and see it in use.
- Will Karmic Seed Palm Leaf Plates and other products affect the taste of my food?
No. Karmic Seed Palm Leaf products won’t alter the taste of your food in any way. Additionally, the issue of food leaching is diminished since no lacquers are used in the process (which is a problem with plastics or PLA plastics/bioplastics face)

FAQ FOR WHEAT DRINKING STRAWS
- What is it made of?
Our straws are naturally grown wheat and rye straws. They're basically just the bottom of a cereal plant.
- How do you make them?
After harvesting cereal plants for food, the remaining stalks are collected and hand-cut into drinking straws. The straws are cleaned with sterilizing methods using hot water. No chemicals or bleach involved.
- Are Karmic Seed Wheat Drinking Straws Gluten-Free?
Yes they are! Our straws are made from the dried stem of the wheat plant, not the grain. Our straws have a low gluten reading of 8ppm, which is classified as gluten-free. For a product to be classified as gluten-free the ppm reading must be under 20ppm.
- Are they suitable for all drinks?
These Eco friendly straws are suitable for cold drinks, juices, water, lemonades, cocktails and more. But because of the narrow diameter that vary between 3 - 7 mm, drinking milkshakes and smoothies will be a lot harder through these straws. Therefore we would not recommend them for drinks with a thick structure. Instead, we would recommend using our Leaf Straws for Smoothies and more viscous drinks.
- Do Karmic Seed Wheat Drinking Straws contain wheat?
Yes, Karmic Seed Wheat Drinking Straws are made from the stem of the wheat plant. Karmic Seed Wheat Drinking Straws are not intended to be eaten or digested and should only be used as a straw to drink various liquids. Our straws are rinsed thoroughly three times before packing to ensure quality.
- I have allergies to wheat hay or grass. Can I use a Karmic Seed Wheat Drinking Straw?
Hay and grass allergens can vary person to person, and everybody is different. If you suffer from severe allergies to hay or grass we recommend you consult your doctor or allergist before using Karmic Seed Wheat Drinking Straws.
