Eco delivery package made of only one material: the dry palm leaf.
Solo is a delivery package made of only one material: the dry palm leaf. The packaging doesn’t require resins, glues or any kind of chemicals, being naturally biodegradable and compostable. Besides that, the container can go in the microwave, oven and freezer.
Palm leaf is composed of natural fibers (hemicellulose, cellulose and lignin) which are proven to have excellent properties to be used in delivery packages, like retaining heat. Additionally, no palms are ever cut or damaged to obtain the raw material. Only dry leaves are ideal for production, so we must wait until they fall naturally. They fall during the whole year and each one can make two containers on average.
Putting botany and design together, Solo keeps the convenience of a disposable package whilst making no harm to nature. This material has equal or even better characteristics compared to the polymer ones, maintaining the food temperature, not absorbing liquid in short term and having no smell or taste.
We’ve designed two final alternatives: a rectangular one and a round one. The first one has a locking system between the container and the lid. The lid also has a little slope to pile other packages and make a safe delivery possible. The second one is composed of two identical fitting parts. Both of the alternatives come with a seed paper belt to ensure proper sealing and to inform the properties of the container.
