We are excited to announce that our new kwai Purely Palm Square Plates will debut at the TED2012 conference February 27 – March 2 in Long Beach, California. TED conferences bring together the world’s most inspiring and fascinating thinkers and doers to give TED Talks, and it is fitting that the “ultimate brain spa” will serve it green on kwai tableware. Nearly 30,000 kwai compostable plates will be used during the largest TED event ever.
Our new square plates have larger surface areas and use the natural shape of the palm frond for added strength. We have been in India for the past few months working on every aspect of our sustainable sourcing, designing our new plates and bowls (preorder now for spring delivery), reducing the environmental impact of our packaging, and working closely with our manufacturers to create more fair-wage employment.
We are excited about our new partnership with TED and we look forward to launching our new products this spring. We invite you to browse our full range of products on our online shop.
