Dining without Plasticizers
Unfortunately the most food containers contains plasticizers. They are suspected of being carcinogenic. Our bamboo made Bento and lunch box is a perfect alternative.
Your children can use it for school. At the office you will have all eyes on you and the lunch box. Campers and hikers love it for its natural materials. Of course it is also great as storage container in the fridge or in general at home.
A privately owned company in Vietnam is producing the food container by hand with care. They use 100% natural materials for production: bamboo, rice powder and natural rubber.
One of nature’s most durable plant is Bamboo
It is very fast growing and one of the hardest wood types. Moreover it is antibacterial by nature. Our bamboo is sourced near the local village. The next thing is that they cut into fine stripes which are glued back together later on after bringing it in the right shape. Because they are using only natural products the glue is a mixture of water and rice powder. For the finish it is carefully polished. That is closing all pores. That makes it water-resistant as well as dirt-repellent.
By the way the bottom part is a bowl and the lid is a plate.
– one bamboo made lunch box

To clean the bamboo product first wipe it out, then wash it in warm water and with mild soap. Rinse it and wipe-dry with a soft cloth. Let it dry completely before you store it. Please avoid abrasive cleaner or tools. Because it is a 100 % natural product you should avoid very hot or very wet food. It is more suitable for salads, sandwhiches and the like then soups. If you have the feeling the material is getting dry you can treet the bamboo product with flax seed oil, olive oil or any other vegetable oil in food-grade quality.
