Pallavi Pande started Dtocs three years ago with three things in mind, sustainability, community, and usability. Dtocs offers a line of compostable tableware from naturally fallen palm leaves from farms where she has personal relationships with the owners and farmers. Pallavi is also a woman of color and a mother of two young Dtocs brand ambassadors. She is hoping that Dtocs can be an elegant, sturdy, and affordable solution for a plastic-free world.
