“Responsible living- towards mother nature, towards our kids and towards our community” That is my Motto and inspiration for DTOCS.
I am Pallavi Pande, a mompreneur based in Portland, Oregon and a proud founder of DTOCS. I am a mother of 2 young DTOCS brand ambassadors and a passionate entrepreneur. I remember eating on banana leaves while growing up in India. Even as a child I loved how this brought us closer to nature in a way that did not cause harm to nature. I started DTOCS with these 3 things in mind- Sustainability, Community and Usability.
DTOCS tableware is made from naturally fallen palm leaves. They are chemical free, plastic free, compostable, microwave safe, elegant and single use disposable. We employ a majority female workforce and part of the proceeds from our sales go towards improving education for the poor local communities in India. DTOCS plates and tableware are made with a focus on quality that makes them a great fit for your daily use as well as weddings and special events. You have to see these products to feel the love we have put into curating them!
We are the proud winners of the NEXTY award at the Natural Product Expo for the most innovative new sustainable product on the market. I also enjoyed auditioning for the final round of Shark Tank. I hope to be in the tank in the near future!
We hope you enjoy using our products as much as we have enjoyed putting them together for you.
