Wooden cutlery makers promote eco-friendly practices


Companies are using wood from planted forests and bamboo to help preserve natural resources.



  • Eco-friendly practices: Makers are promoting sustainable material sources. Several companies, for example, are utilizing wood from planted forests. Many are also turning to bamboo. Apart from being domestically abundant, the grass grows to a full height and girth in one to three years, allowing for quicker replenishment. In terms of packaging, some businesses are adopting 100% recycled paper.
  • Safety: Before packaging, models are disinfected via high-temperature steam sterilization. The procedure eliminates bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms. Most releases meet CE, CIQ, EEC, FDA and LFGB standards.
  • Sets dominate: Products are marketed individually or in sets, with ensembles of four, six, nine and 24 pieces the mainstream. The common inclusions are serving spoons, spatulas, slotted turners and whisks. In general, the type and quantity of utensils are buyer-specified.
  • Aesthetics: For enhanced appearance, select versions have handles with carved, printed or hot stamped designs. Some incorporate gradient colors, including yellow, blue, green and red.
