Produces 100% biodegradable plates, made from natural fibres and recycled paper.
PROVOKAME buys paper for recycling from local retailers and turns it into pulp enriched with natural ﬁbres and seeds. This pulp is then transported to women in rural areas, who use it to make biodegradable plates. Finally, the plates are sold via supermarket chains and shops specialising in organic and natural products. The production satellites are exclusively run by female heads of households who have been trained by PROVOKAME. They work from home and receive payment for each unit produced.
Papelyco; a producer of eco-paper solutions, has since 2010 been working with PROVOKAME, providing capital assets and human resources to help the enterprise achieve its social and environmental goals.
