If you have been a following my blog for a while, you know that I love Core Bamboo products! I love their company and what they stand for. They use 100% organically grown bamboo and make their products ethically by using thousands of artisans from around the world.
Why Use Bamboo?
Bamboo is one of the most remarkable resources on Earth. As a member of the grass family, not a tree, it grows at a much quicker rate than any other wood. From start to harvest (60-70 feet tall) it can take just four years. Bamboo is naturally anti-microbial, therefore stopping bacteria from growing. It is also one of the strongest yet lightest materials around. When bamboo is harvested its natural root system spreads and automatically regenerates itself.
Virtually all of the bamboo that is harvested is used in the process. Even the saw dust created during the cutting is collected and mixed in with other materials to create a concrete like substance used for building and fixing a variety of items-nothing is wasted!
Bamboo is an amazing sustainable resource!
All of our products are made by Core’s experienced team of hard-working artisans in a safe and responsible environment. They take great pride not only in the outstanding quality of their products but in the environment in which they are made. Every product that bears the Core name was made ethically and in a socially responsible way.
When I was given the chance to select something from Core, it truly took me days. Actually I created a list and said I would love any of these items (it was so hard to select just one!). I was excited to find out I would be receiving a set of the Greenwich 4-piece bowl set. I love the colors; they are perfect for this time of year! Seeing how the weather is beginning to cool, soups and chili will be a mainstay in our kitchen. What a perfect way to serve them in this fun and festive set!
I love that they are not breakable (a good feature with the kids) and that they are made from sustainable bamboo. But just because a product is made from wood doesn’t mean it is really safe! Many companies seal their wood with finishes that still can be toxic. Core’s products use food safe water based adhesives and are finished with top grade natural oils. Even the lacquer comes from natural cashew trees!
