How plastic is polluting our lives

Priya founded Naturblatt in 2020. After giving birth to her first child, she was concerned about what our mindless use of plastic does to life on this planet. 

We started producing plastics in the 50s. Since then it has silently become one of our main polluters. Only bit by bit we’re discovering how harmful plastic can be to us and the environment. Some key facts from the Plastic Atlas:

  • We throw away 40% of all plastic products within one month. Of all plastic ever produced, more than half is currently waste.
  • Plastic never composes. Instead, it breaks down into tiny pieces. That’s what we call microplastic.
  • Plastic pollutes our soil, rivers, and oceans. From there, microplastic gets into the food we eat and the water we drink.
  • Those small fragments can absorb toxins and enter our bodies. Studies relate microplastics to health problems such as hormonal disorders, cancer, and infertility.
“I’ve founded Naturblatt from the deep desire to preserve nature’s beauty for my child and all generations after her. Our planet simply cannot stand more plastic. Nature has given us enough alternatives. All we need is some creativity.”
– Priya selvaraj, Founder

Reinventing old traditions

“At home in India, my mother used to wrap our food in banana leaves. It smelled heavenly. I still have the smell in my nose when I close my eyes.” 

At Naturblatt, we have adapted this tradition to the way we consume food today. We use areca palm leaves, which can be shaped using a heat press, to make beautiful compostable dishes.

Our mission: serving food the most natural way.

Made by independent Indian women

We collaborate with self-organized women collectives in Coimbatore in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu. 

The women in India are just as much part of Naturblatt as our team in Germany. And just as much proud of the work we do together. Together, we contribute to a better world.

“I used Naturblatt leaf plates for two events. They are so much better than paper plates as they don’t get soaked and deform. Besides, they don’t go to landfill because they are not coated, and they look so much better. I can only recommend them!”
