Wood Serving Trays are Eco-Friendly and Biodegradable
Love our environment, go plastic-free.
Wood Serving Trays are a completely biodegradable food packaging solution, so whether you choose to reuse them or dispose of them, they keep harmful plastic out of our landfills.
Our concern for the environment guided our decision to choose wood as the main material for our trays. We wanted to be sure that the materials we use are a renewable resource. In general, wood is the most eco-friendly raw material we use as consumers. Wood is recyclable, biodegradable and economical. It grows naturally, and modern forestry standards harvest wood in a sustainable way to preserve the environment as it absorbs carbon dioxide while growing.
Our Wood Trays are untreated, uncoated and assembled using eco-friendly glue made from natural resin and biodegradable zinc-plated steel nails, allowing them to be completely biodegradable without any issue, so they won’t harm our environment!
Made with Paulownia Wood
Our wood trays are made from recyclable Paulownia wood (Paulownia Tomentosa), sourced in Asia and manufactured in China. Paulownia (also known as Royal Paulownia or Princess Tree) is by far THE FASTEST GROWING HARDWOOD TREE IN THE WORLD; growing over 7 feet per year and reaching a height of up to 80 feet within 10-15 years. Wood Trays understands that our clients need trays that are lightweight, durable and strong – which is why Paulownia wood was the perfect choice for our trays. Paulownia does not warp, crack, or twist – making our trays a high-quality and reliable solution ideal for a wide variety of end uses.
• Each acre of Paulownia will remove 13 tons of harmful CO2 gases and dust from the air each year
• Each tree can absorb 24 gallons of wastewater per year and releases about 13 pounds of oxygen per day
• Paulownia can be commercially harvested in 5-7 years and it can regenerate from the stump after harvesting
• Paulownia weighs less than other materials, also reducing the energy used to transport it
Their lightweight, durability and versatility make them the perfect alternative to disposable plastic, ideal for drop-off catering, gift baskets, crafting, floral arrangements, special events, organization, table displays and so much more!
Our wood trays are reusable – you can paint them, stain them or keep them looking natural. Whatever the use, they showcase your quality, sophistication and style – all while being eco-friendly, sustainable and completely biodegradable.
