How are these cutting boards environmentally friendly?
They are environmentally friendly in that they are made from Camphor Laurel - a Declared Environmental Weed Class 3 in Queensland. Camphor Laurel is having an ecologically harmful effect on our natural ecosystems within the South East Queensland and Northern New South Wales environment. By buying these cutting boards, you are supporting the removal and utilization of these invasive, non-native Camphor Laurel weeds/trees to make timber products. This allows the native flora to flourish and plays an important part in the long-term control and management of this weed. For more information, refer to Sunshine Coast Council's letter at the bottom of the page.
Will the Camphor Laurel smell get into my food?
No. The secret is in the kiln-drying – the kiln-drying removes the natural oils from the camphor timber leaving a slight aroma in the board. The board remains smelling beautiful without leaving any scent in your food.
How long will my Camphor Laurel Cutting Board last?
If it has never been in the dishwasher, never been bleached or left in the sunlight, any Camphor Laurel Cutting Board should last for many years. Oiling once or twice a year is ideal.
