How to care for it
Bamboo is easy to wipe clean, is dishwasher friendly and naturally repels fats and water (it’s called nature’s own Teflon).
Recycling & circularity
Unlike plastic, bamboo is 100% compostable and typically breaks down within 6 months. This makes bamboo a great sustainable alternative to regular disposable cutlery, straws and toothbrushes.
