Our palm leaf straws are 100% organic biodegradable single-use drinking straws made out of dried leaves that have fallen to the ground naturally. These leaves sometimes cause harm to the environment in a less apparent way – they are often burnt, sending polluting fumes into the air. Instead, Karmic Seed puts them to good use, being an alternative to plastic and thus being eco-friendly and healthier to the user. Enjoy every sip with pride, without guilt!
Our straws are patent protected.
Made from fallen palm leaves that might otherwise be burnt, emitting thick fumes, these straws do not contain any chemicals that can enter the body of the end-user. The only side-effect they have is a good one; they will help the rural economy in coconut-growing South Asian countries. Every purchase helps provide sustainable work and business to women’s self-help groups, small farmers and other micro-entrepreneurs, thus greatly benefiting India’s rural poor.
This one question would enable us to dig deeper and deeper into countless hours of research. It even took us to different countries, and finally brought us to India, a country known for its innovative spirit from ancient times. The ancestors of this holy land knew how to utilize limited resources. Fortunately, they didn’t have plastic, Styrofoam, etc.. Everything they made was from agricultural waste. From palm leaf plates, Coconut bowls, to clay-based kitchenware, and much more. Everything came from nature and ultimately went right back.
Through research, we discovered that agricultural by-products are abundant all over the world. Unfortunately, much of it is burned which has become a major contributing factor for air pollution in many countries. Agricultural by-products are the most Eco-friendly products in the world. We couldn’t understand why more and more people were not utilizing resources that were being discarded and burned.
On our trip to India, we were able to meet so many wonderful craftsmen, artisans, non-government organizations, women self-help groups, and people that were as passionate about agricultural waste as we were. We have teamed up with these beautiful souls to bring to you some of the best alternatives to plastic products.
All of our products are one hundred percent natural and made from agricultural by-products. When creating our products we will not add anything artificial to embellish the items, as nature has already created its masterpiece and our job is to assist in showcasing its beauty.
