70 Years Of Environment Friendly Disposable Plate Business

During Rajasthani Platter food hunt my team came across this amazing lady who cannot hear properly. She has been making Rajasthani plates of leaves since 70 years, jaw dropping right? I am skeptical about the tree name whose leaves she uses, and for that reason I am not putting any guesses here. So if anyone, after reading this blog knows about it, please share in the comment section. Even I have used these plates in local events which is also known as jeeman, since I am born and brought up in Udaipur, I was aware about her. She is into this business since she started to understand it.

“A group of women sells 4 to 5 sacks full of these leaves to me and I make plates to earn my bread and butter. Selling these plates in bulk at once make my upcoming 3 months easy. There was an adequate amount of demand of these plates a couple of decades ago but since the buffet system took over my business has decreased.”-she told to our team.

The world is applauding a few people for discovering a way to make environment friendly disposable plates, but, in fact, our culture has already spent more than a century doing this.
