The finish on the bamboo utensils is a natural, vegan, food-safe sealant on the utensils to further ensure their durability. The main ingredients in the sealant include Potassium Permanganate (a water-soluable salt, often used as a disinfectant); Acetic Acid (an organic, relatively weak acid that gives vinegar its sour taste and pungent smell, found universally in food stuffs, water and soil); Heptane (most frequently used an an oil repellant, distilled from the resin of the Jeffery Pine and the fruit of the Petroleum Nut Tree, a tree found in the Philippines); and Ethanol (sugar-based and most commonly used form of alcohol, used as a solvent of substances intended for human contact or consumption, including scents, flavorings, colorings and medicines). Recent lab tests have shown that NO heavy metals were detected in the sealant, including lead, arsenic, mercury or chromium.
Bamboo is stronger than wood when in fact it is not wood, but a species of grass. There are more than 1200 species of bamboo in the world.
Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth (with a cycle of 3-5 years). It needs no replantings, grows without fertilizer or pesticides and is biodegrable, even compostable so there's zero waste.
