Every year, 6 million tons of non-durable plastic, such as disposable cutlery, are thrown, with a large portion of this ending up in our ocean playground. As we all know, plastic takes hundreds of years to disintegrate, thus this waste will continue to accumulate with no end in sight. So, switching to eco-friendly alternatives may be the solution to this waste accumulation.
The world has come a long way and is now gradually and intentionally becoming more conscious of its activities toward the environment. People are consciously limiting their consumption of plastic in their daily lives. So, if you are among the population trying to reduce plastic waste, then switching to Bamboo Cutlery might be a small step which you can take.
But why Bamboo Cutlery?
Bamboo as a plant, grows much quicker than any other tree. Bamboo can mature in 3-5 years, whereas trees might take up to 30 years before their wood is usable. As a result, bamboo is one of the few materials that can keep up with human consumption.
This fast-growing grass absorbs twice as much carbon dioxide as trees while producing up to 30% more oxygen. Furthermore, bamboo is extremely durable, making bamboo products tough. Bamboo is also inherently anti-bacterial, making it suitable for making natural hygienic kitchenware.
As a result of these qualities, bamboo cutlery is an excellent ecofriendly alternative to single-use plastic cutlery made up of nonbiodegradable materials.
Here are some of the benefits of bamboo cutlery:
- Lighter than steel: Bamboo is a lightweight, long-lasting, natural, and sustainable material. As a result, the bamboo cutlery set is lighter in weight and easier to use than steel silverware. This feature also makes bamboo cutlery sets ideal for travel.
- Odor resistant: Bamboo with its anti-bacterial properties keeps the cutlery from retaining any odor, thus making it suitable for long-term use.
- Natural and non-toxic: Unlike plastic cutlery, which emits microplastic and is therefore exceedingly hazardous to use, bamboo silverware is entirely natural and non-toxic.
- Recyclable and compostable: Bamboo cutlery is highly durable, but like with all things, there comes a time when you must discard your cutlery set. Bamboo cutlery is made from the all natural bamboo plant and is 100% recyclable and compostable, resulting in zero waste formation.
As a result of these advantages, bamboo cutlery is an excellent substitute for the use and throw plastic cutlery.
