Why you should use bamboo in the kitchen
We are seeing bamboo everywhere, this sturdy material came out of nowhere and is dominating the kitchen scene. From dish accessories to kitchen ware, these neutral coloured pieces are being seen all over the socials. But where does this bamboo come from? And what benefits is it doing for my kitchen? Lets see if this fad is worth buying into.
This amazing material is native to Asia, and is 2-3 times stronger than timber. I KNOW! THATS CRAZY! So this stuff has got to be durable for the kitchen right? A lot of people worry about “wooden” and plant based kitchen ware, they wonder if it will really hold up in the kitchen for their day to day needs. When people see natural materials mixing with water, the first thing that pops into our heads is bacteria. However Bamboo has natural anti fungal as well as antibacterial properties to keep your kitchen as well as your food safe as can be. Bamboo is actually a material that does NOT absorb water, so you can wash it as many times as you want and they will live to tell the tale. Bamboo is not raised with pesticides or fertilizers, so you don't have to worry about anything seeping into your food and creating toxins in the kitchen. Its also worth mentioning that these bamboo products are 100% biodegradable, which means when you're done with them, they can be composted.
