What We Are Made Of

Why Bamboo?

Bamboo is extremely durable and can withstand a great deal of use without damage. When it’s harvested, it does not need to be replanted because it will grow a new shoot from its extensive root system. Bamboo provides a long-lasting, non-petroleum based material that has endless applications for use.

  • beautiful, durable & renewable
  • lightweight & easy to take along
  • doesn’t stain or absorb flavors
  • made to be kept, not tossed in the trash

Why RPET?

The material for our RePEaT and Kids utensil cases are made of RPET, recycled plastic bottles. Plastic soda and water bottles that would otherwise end up in the landfills are given a second shot at a useful life by being recycled into this amazingly strong, color-fast and water-resistant utensil holder.

  • made from recycled plastic bottles
  • gives new life to discarded plastic
  • keeps trash out of landfills
  • one RePEaT case repurposes one plastic bottle

Why Stainless Steel?

Our stainless is 200, 14/1 grade, a grade specifically made for safe storage of food stuffs. 300 and 200 are the most popular, with 200 containing less nickel than 300. Lab tests have shown that our stainless steel contains no levels of materials harmful to people or the planet.

  • BPA-Free & Phthalate-Free
  • Safe & Non-Leaching
  • 100% Recyclable
  • Dishwasher & Oven Safe

Why Silicone?

Did you know … from a single sustainable process and a handful of readily available ingredients, thousands of durable, waste-reducing silicone materials can be created! Silicone consists of four, readily available and abundant elements: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, and silicon. In addition to being completely non-toxic (no BPA’s or petroleum products here), silicone is an incredibly durable, versatile, and environmentally conscious material.

How silicones contribute to sustainable manufacturing and resource conservation:

  • Reducing dependence on petroleum-based organic materials
  • Reducing or eliminating air- and water-polluting emissions
  • Extending the useful lives of consumer goods
  • Serving as more environmentally sound alternatives to volatile organic compounds and other chemicals
  • Reducing raw material requirements and energy and water consumption in manufacturing processes
  • Enabling the use of clean, renewable energy resources
