There are many reasons we have chosen to use this amazing material in all of our dinnerware at Love Mae, but let's start with 1, 2, 3...

1. Durable & versatile. 

Bamboo may be a grass but it has the strength of steel while being lightweight, easy to clean and naturally stain-resistant.

2. Health & safety. 

Our bamboo products are completely free of the chemicals and toxins used in some plastics and melamine, and that have the potential to leech into your food or drink when exposed to heat or acids (such as fruit juice).

3. Low-footprint production.

It's super important to us, and hopefully you, to consider the full production cycle of any products we make. From manufacturing to disposal, bamboo is the most gentle on our environment and our bodies... out of all the dinnerware materials in production.

Using bamboo offers a cost-effective and environmentally responsible alternative to materials that contribute to clearing the world's rainforests – not cool! As a plant, bamboo is easy on the earth as it naturally replenishes itself and therefore doesn't require intensive farming.

In saying this, our production doesn't actually require the harvesting of bamboo; we are merely making use of what otherwise would be wasted or discarded. Our bamboo dinnerware is made from a bi-product of the bamboo industry, the left-overs that no-one uses.
This bi-product is then ground into a powder, mixed with a binding food-grade resin and poured into a mould to set. Each of the bamboo pieces are then treated similarly to porcelain by being baked twice – first to shape the product, then a second time when the decal (design) is applied – before being sealed and finished. 
We love that no mining happens to produce our products, and that all of our Bamboo products are 100% biodegradable, so there is no chance of them ending up in landfill or, worse still, in the Pacific Ocean adding to the plastic island that is choking and killing reefs and wildlife.
Put simply... we use bamboo because we care about the planet and the little people it supports!
