From brand Bambu.

Made from 100% organic and sustainably sourced bamboo that will happily return to nature at the end of its useful life.

Each utensil is made from a single piece of organically grown bamboo which is then hand shaped and finished. Set consists of oval spoon, round spoon, slotted spoon and spatula.

Bamboo is more durable than wood, is heat & stain resistant and is ideal for non-stick cookware. Can be washed in the dishwasher however, as with wooden products, we recommend hand washing to prolong life.  Avoid soaking. Not recommended for microwave.

We selected rCUP because not only are their cups fit for use, they are also a great Cornish company.

Each rCUP is made from 6 used disposable coffee cups, is insulated so will keep your drink warm or cool and is 100% leak proof with an easy to open and close lid. Its also fully recyclable at the end of its life.

rCUP also have a great warranty where they offer to replace worn or damaged lid seals for free.

They guarantee rCUP for one year subject to fair wear and tear.

So not only does buying an rCUP mean that used coffee cups are put to good use they’ll also ensure less disposable cups are used in the future.

Incredible Bulk Jute Bag

£3

Our bags are from Jutexpo. Founded in 2002, they are a small, family run business based in the Midlands.

We decided to buy from them as their facilities are independently audited, ensuring they adhere to the Ethical Trading Initiative Base Code. They have a set of 10 key elements they consider to be the minimum when it comes to ethical and technical standards, awards and credentials

We also love Jute. Jute is fully sustainable. It is a strong, natural, affordable fibre with a low carbon and water footprint.

Nothing is genetically modified where Jute is concerned, no pesticides or fertilisers are used to enhance the growing process. It is 100% bio-degradable.

Our jute bags are lined with PP, this lining adds to the strength and lifespan of the bag, at the end of its life the plastic lining can be peeled off to be recycled and the jute fabric can be fully composted. Alternatively the bag can be taken to a fabric recycling centre, after the clothing is sorted the bags go to be shredded and the fibres are recycled and used as wadding.

The bags lifespan is 4+ years, with an equally long secondary lifespan as storage in garages/cars etc, additionally we’re told they are often used as planters for growing fruits and veg!
