The Boxwood is a reputed brand involved in the manufacture of eco-friendly, bio-degradable food containers. These have been thoughtfully created for use as an alternative to plastic, rubber, foam and other eco-hazardous products. The team at The Boxwood tries its best to meet the aims of an environmentally responsible management company.
With its products the company wants to create awareness amongst people, especially the youth so that they not only make an effort to stop using plastic and other non biodegradable products but also influence those around them to do the same.
Mr. Malay Shah an interior designer by profession was always worried about the impact on Mother Nature in the form of construction, plastic waste, and industrial waste and so on. Considering these issues, he, along with Parin Haria, Rushabh Gala, and Darshana Shah a finance professor, together came up with an idea to create something which is both environment friendly and sustainable. They started a company which then went on to create the brand The Boxwood.
The Boxwood products are made from naturally fallen Indian palm leaves. Almost 60 billion palm leaves fall to the ground every year and this eco-conscious company capitalises on this organic waste by recycling it into very useful and elegant products.
The palm leaves are sustainably harvested, washed and compressed without the use of chemicals, resins or glues. Heat compression gives the palm leaf the different shapes of the extensive tableware range. Heat also renders the product sterile and absolutely ready-to-use. The final product is strong, well shaped and can substitute for any non biodegradable disposable food container. The finished products are completely biodegradable and compostable and can be conveniently composted in their entirety.
Along with being a sensible choice, The Boxwood range is excitingly comprehensive. The range includes plates, bowls and spoons in several sizes. The shapes of the bowls and plates are also varied, as these come in rounds, hexagonals, rectangles, squares and even hearts.
Disposable containers are the need of the hour these days, whether it is outdoor entertaining, meetings, excursions or trips. This range which is both rustic and chic can easily replace conventional, containers made out of harmful plastic, thermocol or any other non biodegradable material. Not only using The Boxwood range makes for a sensible choice, but its rustic feel, look and shape is just what you need to make the food taste even more delicious.
The Boxwood’s naturally beautiful biodegradable products are for consumers who have a conscience and who are willing to contribute towards protecting the environment by showing a keenness to use eco-friendly products. The products are not only a very simple alternative but are a clear greener choice over plastic, polystyrene and paper products.
Seeing the success of their disposable tableware range, The Boxwood has future plans of launching non-toxic paint and eco-friendly beauty products (organic and vegan beauty products). Setting up green mobile applications, which will help users learn more about going green and guide them towards achieving a holistic sustainable lifestyle is also on The Boxwood’s to-do list.
“Our mission at The Boxwood is to care for the world we live in. From the products we make to the ways in which we give back to the society. At Boxwood we strive to set an example for environmental leadership and responsibility with our simple yet important daily-use products,” so signs off the team at The Boxwood.
