Find the answers here to the most commonly asked questions about VerTerra Dinnerware. Have questions about how our site works? Head over to the Site FAQ on the Contact Us page.
Q: Are they single-use/disposable? (They seem so durable)?
A: We know it’s hard to believe that VerTerra Dinnerware is intended for single-use, but our line is actually fully biodegradable and compostable. Because we do not use any bonding agents, lacquers or chemicals and our product is natural and porous, we cannot legally recommend washing and reusing VerTerra.
We can, however, tell you that our customers often write in that they hand wash the plates and enjoy them time and again.
Q: Where do you produce your products (get the leaves)?
A: Our dinnerware is produced in India--there are no leaves in North America that would work. We own our factory where all of our workers receive fair wages in safe working conditions and are provided access to medical care.
Q: Isn’t shipping your product from India energy inefficient?
A: Ships do use energy, but they are a surprisingly efficient means of transportation, especially since our products pack flat. In fact, the energy for us to ship a container to our warehouse is equal to a truck driving round trip from New York to Boston. We believe we have a negative carbon impact, between us saving millions of leaves from being burned and our hyper-efficient factory.
Q: Are VerTerra dishes completely non-toxic?
A: Yes, all of our products are completely non-toxic, because we use nothing but leaves and water.
Q: Are these clean? Do I need to wash them before I use them?
A: You can serve meals on our products straight out of the package! All VerTerra dinnerware is cleaned and UV sterilized in our factory no less than three (3) times, so they’re extremely clean.
Q: Will these affect the taste of my food?
A: No. VerTerra products won’t alter the taste of your food in any way. They also have no lacquers on them, so there’s nothing to leach into your food-something that :" ":t VerTerra in the microwave for up to 2 minutes 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 VerTerra products in the refridgerator or freezer.
Q: Are VerTerra dishes recyclable?
A: No. Recycling involves melting permanent materials (i.e. metals, glass, plastic, and etc), and reforming them for reuse. Since our products are made from leaves, they’re compostable and will naturally return to the earth in 2 months. This process uses 90% less energy than recycling.
Q: Does VerTerra Dishes hold liquids?
A: Yes - liquids, soups and anything else you can cook up.
Q: Who makes VerTerra Products?
A: We do. Unlike many companies that outsource production to cut costs, we proudly own all of our production facilities so that we can ensure the highest manufacturing standards and working conditions for our employees. All VerTerra employees work in conditions compliant with international standards and earn a steady income to support their families.
Use these dinning pieces and make a positive change for our enviroment.

Love the product and love the fast service.. Thank you
these plates warp very easily and can be difficult to use
These plates are awesome.
I purchased them for my Pig-a-Que wedding dinner and they held up great to the abuse. I got a ton of compliments on them as well!
They look great and they work!
Large plates were warped - they do not lay correctly on a table. The plates were unique
