Should you Choose Bamboo for your Kids?

When it comes to our children, we all want the best. Our priority is to ensure that they are as protected as we can make them, and in the early years that certainly means being aware of the products they are interacting with. Mealtimes are a universal aspect of life with little ones and can often be when kids can be most at risk from eating with and from items that are made from unhealthy plastic or chemically treated materials. That is what makes bamboo plates, bamboo cutlery, bamboo bowls and bamboo toddler dishes so remarkable, they can ensure your precious offspring is protected, all with excellent functionality and trend-setting design.

Getting to Know Bamboo

If you aren’t familiar with bamboo and why using bamboo plates and bowls for kids particularly is becoming so popular, we have the info you need. Bamboo is a highly renewable eco-crop that can be used in multiple ways from textiles to building homes and in the creation of safe, stylish and sustainable tableware. Since bamboo grows at a such a fast rate (around 24 to 36 inches every day) it is a highly sustainable material. Its useful credentials are further enhanced by the fact that it is 16% stronger than any other plant and can be grown without pesticides or chemicals. Most importantly for the planet, bamboo produces 35% more oxygen than its equivalent trees and can absorb as much as 12 tonnes of carbon dioxide per hectare a year.

The Benefits of Bamboo

Here are some of the key facts as to why using bamboo utensils and bamboo tableware are good for the planet and for your little ones.

Durability. Bamboo plates and bowls are super durable and pretty hard to break. Since they are so strong, this means they can withstand any ‘antics’ including being thrown on the floor or across the room when someone isn’t a fan of their veggies!

Safety. Bamboo tableware, including cutlery, bowls, plates and cups, is much safer than many alternatives. It is generally grown and manufactured without the use of pesticides and chemicals and has a natural defense that wards off harmful bacteria. That is why anti-bacterial bamboo is a great option for kids and will keep them safe and healthy.

Eco-friendly. Since bamboo is 100% biodegradable, it is extremely eco-friendly. Naturally grown at a fast speed, bamboo is easily sustainable and renewable, so you can feel good about your carbon footprint.

Style and Substance. Bamboo utensils and tableware are high quality in terms of product functionality and lasting style. They are light enough for kids to handle on a regular basis and are a chic and elegant option for parents who want to have the best in their home.
