Leaves Plates: New Green world- future for the ecosystemis the initiative to address the problem of Climate/ environmental degradation. Our approach might not be the perfect solution towards the global pollution problem but it's obviously is a small step towards the better and healthier world of tomorrow.The pollution is increasing in such a large scale , it might be too late before we realize. So, our project focuses on utilizing the leaves of the tree to make a plate out of it and replace the widely used plastic and styrofoam plates . The leaves plates are biodegradable and pure natural product which leaves zero carbon footprint which makes it a beneficial eco-friendly initiative.

The manufacturing plant will be based in the terai region which is the southern part of Nepal with fertile land and we will be focusing on making the leaves plates using leaves of Saal trees (Shorea Robusta) because of their tenderness and broad leaves characteristics. Furthermore, we will be providing necessary skills and training to the villagers of rural Nepal (especially,women) to make leaves plates by utilizing local resources. After training, the villagers will be provided with employment opportunities.This would help the Rural communities of Nepal to earn money and able to sustain their living and Education for children.

Our impact:  The social impacts/success of this project will be measured by the progress of replacing the harmful and Non-Ecofriendly plastic and paper plates with our natural leaves plates. This is the small initiative that positively impacts in our environment and society. This projects is important because this project not only provide the replacement of the plastics plates with leaves plates but this project also provide women empowerment in the rural villages of Nepal. The most important aspect of success of this project is made into the measurement of awareness we create in our society and community about the affects of plastics pates and non-degradable products in our ecosystem where we are launching and implementing our projects. Our plan is to focus the restaurants of New York City and Kathmandu valley along with the awareness Campaign of reducing plastic and paper plates with leaves plates;hence a step towards greener and healthier world. We are planning to start our initiative within this month and planning to organize the awareness campaign and conferences at different places of New York city. The fund that are raised will be directly handed to the specified program director of this initiative to conduct this project.

we will complete the phase -I of the initative in New york city(The Phase-I  of the initiative includes awareness campaign, Street food Festivals & Meetng with Government agencies and companies at New York City to implement Leaves Plates). so, after completing the phase-I in New York city, our committee will travel back to Nepal on June 2016 for searching the better places to established the training centre and schools for rural communities of Kosrang, Kavre, Siraha & Birdaya where our committee will establish the training centre for producing leaves plates and planning to provide job opportunities for the rural village communities. After completing the establishment of Training centre and production house of leaves Plates, our committee will return back to New York city and start implementing the initiative to replace toxic plastic plates into home made natural leaves plates that is manufacture by rural villagers back in Nepal.
