Solo Packaging

Biodegradable and compostable delivery packaging made from agriculture residue


Solo is a delivery packaging made of only one material: the dry palm leaf. The package 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 without adding other substances.

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. Palm leaves 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 the short term
