At ChicoBag and To-Go Ware, we look at sustainability from every angle. That includes the materials we choose for our reusable products. For our To-Go Ware reusable utensils, we did some serious sleuthing to determine what materials would be the most planetand people-friendly.
The result? Bamboo!
- Lasts longer than a 90s Macbook.
Bamboo is durable and can withstand a great deal of use without damage. We predict many years of picnic lunches in
- Sustainable #Goals:
Bamboo self-regenerates from its own roots, so it doesn't need to be replanted. No fertilizer required.
- Beats the Road Runner every time.
Bamboo grows really fast. As in up to four feet in 2 days fast.
- Comes with superpowers.
Bamboo contains an antimicrobial bio-agent called "bamboo kun" which helps ward off bacteria and thrive in nature
by warding off bugs and pests.
For comparison: one stainless steel fork weighs about 2 oz. Our entire Premium Bamboo Utensil Kit (including fork,
knife, spoon, chopsticks, straw, and case) weighs 1.6 oz.
- Great taste in outerwear.
Natural, FDA compliant food-grade coating, that is. Bamboo is a natural base for our hand-finished coating.
- Bathes regularly.
While it prefers a good sponge bath, bamboo can hang with the cleanest of dishwashers
- Looks good.
Bamboo is a classy grass. Plus, it resists stains and weird flavors, so it ages gracefully.
- Makes Hercules question his gym routine.
Bamboo is one of the strongest building materials around. Its tensile strength (resistance to snapping under tension) is
stronger than mild steel.
- Our go-to for 02:
Bamboo groves give off 35% more oxygen than any other type of tree groves.
