Some plastic items are more dangerous for sea animals than others. The Ocean Conservancy ranks plastic cutlery as the second most dangerous plastic trash, right after fishing nets. Animals in the ocean often mistake plastic trash for food, which leads to a painful death. To help the animals and the environment, the best thing to do is to avoid single-use plastic cutlery and start using reusable ones. By bringing your eco-friendly cutlery set on-the-go, you can refuse single-use plastics while still enjoying your food at the train, at the park or your take-away lunch. You can keep your reusable utensils in your bag or your car.
In my Zustainabox from October, I received a reusable bamboo cutlery set from the brand Bambaw. The set is made from bamboo. It includes a knife, a fork, a spoon and a drinking straw with a corresponding cleaning brush. They are all packed in a natural cotton pouch with additional space to add chopsticks or any other utensils.
I discovered the brand ‘Bambaw’ via ZustainaBox. The ZustainaBox is a box full of sustainable alternatives for your current products. The box contains between 7 and 8 items and gets delivered every 8 weeks. The products are all vegan, cruelty-free, help you towards a plastic-free life and are made with a low environmental impact. When you subscribe as a member, you will receive weekly tips and inspiration for an eco-lifestyle in your mailbox.
The boxes get deliver as green as possible. Within the cities, the delivery is by bicycle, outside the cities is with green cars. The next delivery dates are:
– The week of 16th December
– The week of 24th February
