Bamboo products compared with plastic and wood products
|The new environmentally friendly cutlery is a better alternative to plastic
（GJZ）-----Although bamboo is sometimes mistaken for a tree, it’s actually a grass. This may sound like a primitive material to use for things like bowls and cutting boards, but nothing could be further from the truth.
Bamboo vs. plastic products
Bamboo products are quickly replacing many plastic items for a number of reasons:Bamboo cutting boards are more resistant to bacteria growth and are easier on a chef’s knife.While bamboo stays straight and true, plastic cutting boards tend to warp when exposed to moderate heat.Plastic bowls can leech chemicals into the food that you eat. This is especially true when eating foods high in acidic content, such as sauerkraut. Bamboo dinnerware will not only add an elegant, earthy look to your table, it’s also a giant leap away from ingesting latent chemicals from the plastic manufacturing process.bamboo is 100% biodegradable. While a plastic utensil will still be in the landfill when your children’s children have children, bamboo will completely biodegrade in under a year.
Bamboo vs. wood products
A bamboo cutting board generally requires much less maintenance than its wood counterpart.Bamboo tableware does not acquire the rough texture that wood utensils seem to exhibit within a few months of use. While some may find it odd to eat with anything other than metallic silverware, others enjoy the taste of their food more when metal is not placed in the mouth with each bite. Give it a try. You just may love it.Due to the fast growth rate of bamboo, products created from bamboo do not contribute to deforestation the way that wood products do.
