To put it simply...
We have chosen bamboo because we care about the planet and the little people it supports!
Eco friendly? We took this over-used tag and dug a little deeper...since day dot, we've prided ourselves on our ethical brand values, with the sustainable, low impact manufacturing principles to back it up. All of Love Mae's products are either 100% biodegradable or readily recyclable, toxin free and manufactured with the lightest planetary footprint possible.
Lets get more technical...
We are passionate about respecting the earth and take our roles as caretakers for the next generation super seriously. We are extremely proud that all Love Mae's bamboo products are biodegradable, including the gorgeous box packaging offered in our sets.
Our Bamboo dinnerware range is made from a bi-product of the bamboo industry, the leftovers that no-one uses. This is then ground into a powder, mixed with food grade binding resins and then poured into a mould to set. Each of the bamboo pieces are then treated similarly to porcelain, where they are baked twice - the first time to shape the product, then again a second time when the decal is applied. The product is then sealed and finished.
We LOVE that no mining happens for our products, but we are especially proud that no harvesting of bamboo happens either... we are merely making use of what would otherwise be wasted.
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. As beautiful as melamine can be, it can't be recycled or broken down...ever. It also has the potential to have dangerous chemicals and substances that are added as 'fillers'.
Even simple choices can have you respecting our planet and nurturing your child's future, so we're here to help you make a good one. Do yourself, your child and your planet a favour and purchase planet-friendly and sustainable products. Its important too us, and hopefully you, to think of the full production cycle of the products we make - bamboo, from manufacturing to disposal, is the most gentle to our environment and our bodies of all the dinnerware products.
Love Mae has you covered and you can rest assured you're being a good parent and guardian of the planet.
