- Once dry, lather with oil - preferably Olive, Sesame or Coconut Oil - and allow to sit for 24 hours befrore using.
- Frequently oiling your cutlery will help keep their longevity.
- DO NOT soak or keep wet for too long as this will weaken them, and may cause them to split

The Facts - Why Bamboo?
Picture all the plastic you regularly throw out... now picture that on a global scale. The majority of that plastic won't break down in landfill in our lifetime, or even that of your children! It is scary what we are doing to our planet.
Bamboo is a natural celluose fibre and is biodegradable, environmentally sustainable, and does not pollute the environment. The amazing growth and self-regenerating ability of bamboo means that deforestation is also not necessary. Bamboo grows back in a few months (and is full sized in 3 years) vs. regular trees taking 25 years.
Bamboo is grown with minimal water required and without the needed for harmful fertilisers and pesticides. In fact, discarded leaves of bamboo provide all the needed nutrients when they start to decompose in the soil. Bamboo also has a wide and strong root system which holds the soil stable and prevents erosion of the ground.
Bamboo releases 30% more oxygen into the atmosphere and absorbs more carbon dioxide compared to other plants. Because of these features, bamboo greatly decreases the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and cleans the air.
This is all compared to the nasty chemicals and resources used to make plastic straws, polluting our planet whilst they are being made and then for the decades and even centuries they sit in landfill!
