Have A Plate And Eat It Too

A short but informative video goes inside Vistaraku, a company in Hyderabad, India that makes biodegradable disposable plates and bowls out of leaves from the Palash Tree. The leaves have natural antibacterial and antiseptic properties, which make eating from them a sustainable and healthy option. Each of the plates and bowls are made by women from Siddipet, Hyderabad, and Thimmareddypally The company was started by Madhavi  and Venu Vippulanchachi. The couple each quit their high tech jobs in Silicon Valley and moved to India. After battling breast cancer, Madhavi wanted to live more naturally. Thus the idea for Vistaraku was born.
