To simply offer sustainable products to protect nature is just not enough for us, we also give back to nature!
The rapid worldwide deforestation of vital primeval forests, led us to set ourselves the goal of acting against this to protect nature. With our brand "Leef Unlimited" we save 1 square meter of threatened rainforest from deforestation with each plate sold.
For rainforest protection, we work together with our partner World Land Trust (WLT), which organizes the purchase and permanent protection of these rainforest plots. We have chosen this extremely effective organisation due to the fact that every cent with them is really invested in the protection of the forests. So far, we have already saved 162,046 m² of threatened forests.
Our mission: to protect as many square metres as we can with our plates. Leef Unlimited is the economic mechanism that constantly provides new funds for rainforest protection. Unlike fundraising organizations, the project does not end when the donations are used up. The protection continues, plate by plate, meter by meter. Unlimited.
At Leef Unlimited, our non-profit project, it is a matter close to our hearts to solve the acute problem of the avalanches of plastic waste at events of all kinds. Organizers want and need to make their events plastic-free and sustainable. This poses a real problem of financing for caterers, as sustainable food carriers are more expensive than conventional ones (approx. 20 cents per dish). Despite this, stand rent and issue prices remain the same for them. Leef Unlimited offers a remedy here.
And this is how it works:
If we are named by Leef as the exclusive supplier of an event, we work profitless through our non-profit project. We deliver our sustainable packaging at best market prices and donate all profits made. In this way, for every palm leaf plate used, a full square meter of rainforest can be purchased and protected over the long term. This is documented in detail at the event location. It enables the caterers to charge an extra 20 cents for the packaging, which not only avoids waste but also makes a lasting contribution to environmental protection. Countless events have shown that this is positively received by both guests and restaurateurs without exception.
This is what comes out of it:
Through our bulk deliveries to the event location, we save CO2 and turn avalanches of packaging waste into mountains of compost. The costs for this are distributed among all visitors. In addition, by buying a dish on Leef Unlimited plates, everyone protects 1 square meter of rainforest. At large events, this means that a large area of rainforest is protected.
