If you’re looking for something to impress your guests with at your next dinner party, here is a very cool selection of eco-friendly dinnerware solutions by Verterra (veritas terra = true to the earth).

These bowls, plates, cups and platters are all made from only leaves and water, are made using sustainable production methods, and with fair trade labor. If you’re only looking for a single use plate for a picnic, here’s some good news: the plates are compostable, and are made with no chemicals, dyes or toxins.

Or, if you’re looking for a long-term set of dishes, the plates can withstand months of washing and can be a permanent fixture on your dinner table.

It might seem hard to believe that such cool looking plates can be made from nothing but agricultural waste in a factory that uses the same amount of energy as an apartment, but there is photo evidence that this is the case: check out Time’s Photo Gallery of the products, from fallen palm tree leaves to the finished plates. Place your order for your own right here.

Thanks to Paul Smith for the tip.
