Biodegradable containers made from “yagua” palm leaves

In Santo Domingo, Porfirio manufactures 100% natural, biodegradable containers made from “yagua” leaves. These leaves, collected once they have fallen to the ground, are transformed into trays, plates and other items to hold food. Unlike the polystyrene containers commonly used, Porfirio’s containers do not harm the environment. What’s more, he works with local communities to source its supplies, creating economic opportunities while preserving nature.
