Product FAQ

Bamboo fibre 

All our bamboo products have been inspected and tested to the highest standards by the leading testing and verification company SGS. Our products pass all the requirements set out by the European Union and are classified as food-safe. 

  • Regulation (EU) No. 10/2011 for plastic materials intended to come into contact with foodstuffs.
  • German food & feed acts LFGB (30&31)
  • Regulation (EC) No. 1935/2004

The products in our eco-friendly bamboo range are made from 70% organic materials. The composition is as follows:

  • 35% bamboo fibre
  • 30% corn powder
  • 5% wood fibre
  • 29.5% melamine
  • 0.5% polyamide resin

Melamine is a necessary component of our bamboo range. Because it’s a thermosetting plastic, it doesn’t melt when heated, so you can sip hot drinks stress-free. Melamine is also used in bamboo kitchenware to coat the outer surface of the product, ensuring nothing will catch fire and no damage will occur when it comes into contact with hot liquid or food. This means all our bamboo mugs, plates, storage containers and more are completely safe for you and your family.
