This disposable timber cutlery is manufactured from a sustainable renewable plantation, grown for purpose. The timber is untreated and food contact approved. The cutlery can be composted, it is beneficial for compost because it provides structure for aeration and carbon, however it also makes great kindling so collecting them for someone with a fire is a good option.
Plastic is not disposable and has an unsustainable reliance on oil. Plastics prices have increased many times in the last few years, nearly 50% from early 2007 to mid 2008. During this time period we have not had a price increase. Our timber cutlery is stronger than most of the plastic cutlery and using timber ensures the continual planting of trees. The lifecycle of trees contributes to very large volumes of CO2 being absorbed from the atmosphere and O2 generated, a very positive contribution to the reduction of climate change emissions and the carbon footprint.
