Providing Sustainable Products for both the Kitchen and Home, Meet The Sustainabowl, A product by Bamboozle
In this highlight we turn our attention to The Sustainabowl, a dishwasher and microwave friendly biodegradable product by Bamboozle, a company dedicated to working towards providing sustainable products for both the kitchen and home. Bamboozle’s kitchenware is made from a bamboo fiber blend combined with a mixture of cornstarch resin and polypropylene (the recyclable plastic that water bottles are made from). They have been working over the years to reduce the plastic content in our products, from 50% in 2015 down to 15% in this new material, called Astrik, a product some call The Most Sustainable kitchen product around.
What is Astrik, you ask? Astrik is made from PLA bioplastic and bamboo fiber, where raw materials are grown in the earth instead of extracted from it. Farms local to processing plants and factories reduce emissions-heavy transport to a fraction of the distance. Creating PLA itself only emits a fifth of greenhouse gases that traditional plastics do. The final product is sturdy, dishwasher and microwave safe, and composts within 2 years once you decide to throw it away. This material will debut as a 3-piece mixing bowl set during their Kickstarter event in October 2018. (site: https://www.bamboozlehome.com/the-material/)

There have also been articles pointing to the recent effects of air pollution caused by the poor maintenance of our shared environments. These reports can be found in numerous reports however for this particular article, USA Today was a trusted source.
