Bamboo is one of the world's most renewable resources. It grows extremely fast – some species can grow 3 feet per day – and it can be continuously harvested every three years without damaging the plant. In China, bamboo is used for everything from chopsticks to flooring. The Chinese bamboo industry produces a tremendous amount of sawdust, and for years Ekobo has turned that sawdust into simple and stunning dining, outdoor, and bath products. Their signature BIOBU® is a bamboo eco-composite that mixes ground bamboo sawdust with 100-percent non-toxic food-grade melamine binder. The result is an alternative to traditional plastics – strong, BPA-free, reusable products perfect at home or at the campsite.
The “white” is an off-white as it is the natural color of bamboo. Slight color imperfections or inconsistencies may occur. While Ekobo products are durable and long-lasting, this eco-friendly material is not unbreakable. It will not shatter like ceramic or glass, but if dropped at a bad angle on a hard floor, a chip or crack may occur.
