Why Bamboo?

Many people have asked us why we chose to utilize bamboo cutting boards.  After a lot of research we decided to use bamboo because of the following:

  • Bamboo biodegradable.
  • Bamboo is a sustainable product.  It is actually the fastest growing plant on Earth.  Once harvested, bamboo can regenerate itself to its original size in as little as 6 months.  Some variations of bamboo have been known to grow up to 4 feet in just 24 hours.
  • Bamboo is much lighter than hardwood.
  • Bamboo is not a porous as other woods.  So it will not soak up as much water or bacteria as other woods might.
  • Bamboo cutting boards are easier on your knives.  It is extremely hard to scar a bamboo cutting board with a knife, and at the same time, it is soft enough not to damage or dull your knives.
  • Unlike wood, bamboo has no knots which give it the ability to tolerate more stress.
  • And most importantly, it is the right thing to do for our planet.
