Our Team

Our Team
Founder & CEO
Even as a young student, committed environmentalist Michael Dwork understood the gravity of America's disposable waste and the great impact a plate like the one he saw while interning in India could have on our environment. Throughout his business school years, he worked tirelessly to improve the design and composition of the plates. Ultimately, VerTerra was born.
VerTerra was not Michael's first business. With an economics degree from Columbia College and 4-years working in investment banking and other financial positions in New York City, the native New Yorker set off to study Chinese as a full time student at Nanjing University in China. While there, he started a company offering translation and negotiation services for foreign companies. He sold it before starting his M.B.A. at Columbia Business School.
Michael's entrepreneurial talents gained recognition at business school. He won Columbia's Lang Fund competition for budding entrepreneurs and the school's outrageous business plan competition. In addition, he won the Draper Fisher Jurvetson East Coast Venture Challenge
Since graduating, Michael has been featured in major publications including Time,,, Businessweek TV, Treehugger and The New York Sun. He is also on the young patrons' board of The Asia Society and The Museum of Art and Design.
Chief Operating Officer
Josh oversees day-to-day operations, bringing leadership experience to the VerTerra team. Josh's background includes senior management positions in sales, marketing and operations for Fortune 500 and leading private companies.  Josh's acumen has led to press notice in numerous publications including Fast Company, Sales & Marketing Management, San Francisco Business Times, San Francisco Chronicle and Advertising  Age and on many TV news programs.  Josh is excited to contribute to VerTerra's mission to help make the world a better place, one party at a time.

Why Us?

VerTerra Dinnerware From Fallen Leaves™
About Dinnerware From Fallen Leaves™
While we can't promise that your meal will be guilt-free, we can promise that your dinnerware will be.
Our environmentally-friendly plates, bowls and serving dishes are made only from two products: fallen leaves and water. They're non-toxic, biodegradable, compostable, durable, lightweight, convenient and downright stylish.
Shop VerTerra Dinnerware From Fallen Leaves
VerTerra Dinnerware From Fallen Leaves™ is BPI-Certified compostable.  Tests also show soil containing VerTerra compost enhances plant growth over 15%!
Durable + Versatile
VerTerra Dinnerware stands up to hot foods and liquids.  Whether you're serving chili or soup, sauces and more, VerTerra acts as a natural insulator (helpful for when carrying hot items), doesn't leak and won't impart taste.
VerTerra is made using fallen palm leaves, steam, heat and pressure.  No plants or trees are cut down to make VerTerra.  What could be more sustainable than fallen leaves that would have likely otherwise been burned?
Microwave + Oven Safe
VerTerra Dinnerware is microwave-safe for reheat on High, up to 2 minutes.  You can also do short bakes in the oven, up to 350° for up to 45 minutes; however, the plates must be at least 6" from the heat source.
VerTerra Dinnerware From Fallen Leaves™ will naturally biodegrade after use at home or in industrial compost, without the need of harmful chemical agents.
Sun Resistant
The sun has no effect on VerTerra, so you can feel confident to use for outdoor events, like picnics, BBQs, festivals and more.
