Why you should be using bamboo kids tableware

Here at Rinkit we love finding sustainable and eco-friendly tableware solutions for you to explore. Your everyday kitchen crockery cupboards can now be filled with our stunning range of Bamboo Kids Tableware for the whole family to enjoy.

Why should I be using Bamboo Kids Tableware?

Firstly, Bamboo is an incredibly strong and sustainably sourced material around the world, in fact, it’s one of the most eco-friendly materials on Earth. Used for the wood industry, pulp and paper, the textile industry, used for steering wheels and other car body parts, even bioplastics and so much more. As it is biodegradable, these products are helping the environment through less plastic consumption, which means a healthier planet for everyone. 

With all that in mind, why wouldn’t you use Bamboo Kids Tableware for your children? By combining playful colours and shapes with anti-bacterial and anti-microbial qualities, these bamboo plates, bowls and spoons create solutions designed to delight both mealtimes and planet a like.

The Key Benefits - 1. Design

When you buy tableware there are a few key factors you look for such as - functionality and style, but the functionality factor becomes even more important when you are buying for kids. Our range of Bamboo Kids Tableware not only has bright and inviting colours and patterns to stimulate children’s vision, but also the perfect shapes and sizes for meal times to be a smooth experience… for once.

Currently, we have two ranges of Bamboo Kids Tableware; one of our ranges has the clever and colourful suction cup you can see here, which is attachable to our bamboo bowls and plates and matching bamboo spoons too. This is one of those things that as soon as you use it you wonder how you ever did without it before! When those inevitable tantrums kick in in the highchair, spilt tomato juice and squished bananas everywhere will be a thing of the past. The suction plate will stick your tableware to the table – not even the strongest of little one’s can break the suction.

Our other range is the Patterned Bamboo Kids Tableware, combining functionality and fun. This range is available in a large set including cups, bowls, plates, and cutlery. Giving you the full package ready to set off on a full day's adventures prepared for anything.

Both of our ranges have the added feature of a segmented designed plate. Making mealtimes that tiny bit more organised. It’s a practical benefit that will help your kids to differentiate between foods and feed themselves while you can get that charming social media post that won’t go disliked.

The lightweight design of all of our Bamboo Kids Tableware also gives you the option of portability – perhaps, picnics in the park or dinner at a friend’s.

With a selection of designs, colours, patterns, and shapes available you can find the right Bamboo Kids Tableware for them and you. Whether they love dinosaurs, flowers, cars, elephants, or unicorn shapes, we have something to suit and engage them in dinner time.

The Key Benefits - 2. Material

As I already mentioned, Bamboo is incredible as a material for so many uses around the world. There are so many kitchenware and tableware products in the homeware and interior design business in this day and age that are either made from 100% bamboo, or mixed materials including bamboo. A sustainable biodegradable material, our Bamboo Kids Tableware is something to be proud of and show off. 

Now, let’s talk about durability. It is so important that you’re happy with the tableware you are serving to your children, so, we made sure it was not only lightweight but incredibly durable. That way a knock off the table or high-chair won’t be a 10 minute clean up job but rather a 5 second, pick-it-up and resume.

Keeping these products sturdy for constantly growing humans was so important to us when we designed them. Kids grow out of clothes, toys and (thankfully) attitudes. However, when it comes to our collection of Bamboo plates and bowls you can keep them around for years of use.

The Key Benefits - 3. Usability

Bamboo has many positive qualities, especially when it’s compared to plastic, which is a very common material when it comes to kids tableware. Did you know that 50% of plastic is never reused or recycled and it takes up to 1,000 years for plastic to biodegrade? That means every plastic product you have ever bought is still somewhere round the world right now.

Our patterned collection of Bamboo Kids Tableware has been designed to be 100% biodegradable and therefore, eco-friendly. Our Suction Cup Collection of Bamboo Kids Tableware is organic and eco-friendly, it’s naturally anti-bacterial and anti-microbial.

Where we can, we at Rinkit are constantly thinking of new and improved ways to help our planet and environment. And these ranges of Bamboo Kids Tableware are a great way to start your very own collection of eco-friendly tableware for your kitchen!

The Key Benefits - 4. Maintenance

As a parent you need to know the things you are buying are not only doing good for your kids but are going to help you out when it comes to the clean-up duties. All of our Bamboo Kids Tableware just needs a quick hand wash and towel dry to get prepared for the next meal, whatever time that may be.

As bamboo fibres don’t soak up colour or odour from the food that’s in or on it, they are easy to clean and maintain. The bamboo doesn’t allow for the food to seep into the fibre so most meals can simply be wiped away with some soapy water and a sponge.

Our suction cup collection needs a tiny bit more maintenance - to best preserve and prolong the life of your Bamboo Kids Tableware, we recommend washing by hand. Once a month, wipe down with coconut oil or beeswax to keep the bamboo supple and strong.

The Key Benefits - 5. Other Uses

Recycling is an incredible and easy way to help our planet and waste less around the house or garden. When your kids have grown up and finished with your Bamboo Kids Tableware, why not re-use it as a snack bowl or plate for you, a crafts palette for painting or even reusing the spoons as herb garden labels? There are always second and third uses and we love to see your ideas and creations for recycling or reusing our products.
