bamboo sheath roll

A study by Canadian scientist Martin Hocking shows that making a paper plate uses as much petroleum or natural gas as a polystyrene plate. Plus, the paper product uses wood pulp. The Canadian study said, ‘The paper product consumes 12 times as much steam, 36 times as much electricity, and twice as much cooling water as the plastic equivalent.

But that doesn't mean expanded polystyrene (styrofoam) is good. All plastics take a long time to biodegrade - some estimate as much as several centuries. Fortunately there is a great alternative to the age old question of "Paper or Plastic." Bamboo Studio!

Bamboo Studio Dinnerware is made from the bamboo sheath. The sheath is a protective covering found on newly emerging bamboo plants. As the plant matures, the sheath falls to the ground and most often is unutilized. Our process collects these sheaths and then they are cleaned, boiled, laminated to the desired thickness, and pressed into shape. The result is disposable/reusable dinnerware that is elegant, strong and 100% biodegradable.

Consider this:

  • Of all the disposable/reusable dinnerware on the market, Bamboo Studio dinner most closely resembles it's source material in it's natural form. Paper and sugarcane plates must first be turned into a pulp
  • A significant amount of energy is needed to manufacture both virgin paper and recycled paper
  • Traditionally, paper is made white by toxic chlorine bleaching that has a negative impact on rivers, lakes, oceans and our health. Even new technologies like Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF) bleaching, though less toxic, still cause damaging effects. Bamboo Studio Dinnerware is produced without using any harsh chemicals.
  • Expanded polystyrene (styrofoam) can take centuries to biodegrade and coated paper products can take decades.
