- Our dinnerware is dishwasher-safe!
- Wash before first use.
- Sometimes our products appear to have a dust-like coating when first out of their packaging. This is a non-harmful plant residue from the manufacturing process and will wash off.
Our products are safe to be used for short burts in the microwave. However, as they are made of the same ingredients as your food (both plant-based!) they can become hot in the same way! So always exercise caution- protective wear & no longer than 2 minutes’ microwave time MAX recommended.
We personally use this dinnerware on a daily basis at EcoCubs HQ with our own two (rather rough!) little bears. We are confident in the durability of the products for every day use with children or when outdoors.
Having said that, we cannot guarantee that our products are as tough as those made of pure plastic or melamine. Unfortunately, we cannot promise that they will not be broken if subjected to a doozy of a tantrum or throw!
So please do treat them with a little more TLC than you would those products that are made from synthetic materials.
Simply put: bamboo is one of the greenest materials on the planet! It is one of the fastest growing plants in the world and yields up to 25x more than regular trees. Not only this, it grows easily without pesticides or fertilizers, absorbs carbon dioxide at higher rates AND emits 35% more oxygen than that of a similar sized tree. It truly is a wonder plant!
Combining this with the byproducts of corn (mainly its starch) results in a material that is carbon neutral to produce and non-toxic to our bodies and the planet. And together they are 100% bioedegradable!
Why do we love them for our family?
Environment and health aside, our dinnerware is durable (bamboo is harder than maple but lighter than oak!), dishwasher, freezer and microwave safe (refer to instructions for time guidelines) and oh so cute! In fact, our EcoCubs Original pattern is a one of a kind! Designed in house by our very clever sister and tested thoroughly by our little bears, it is gender & age neutral and sweet & unassuming. With sizes suitable to everyone it makes the perfect picnic accessory, caravan kit or eco gift for any bear!
Silicone is a non-toxic material, meaning it won’t leach chemicals in to our bodies, but just as importantly, it won’t leach chemicals in to our planet or oceans. Made from silica, a by-product of sand, it is much more durable and long-lasting than any plastic so its life-cycle will be greater.
It is also a recyclable material! Having said this, Australia is a little behind in our ability to recycle it here and so at EcoCubs we are offering a program. Send your silicone back to us (we’ll pay the postage!) and we’ll ensure it is appropriately recycled at the end of its lifecycle.
Beechwood on the other hand is a totally naturally occurring material. It is non-treated, finished with vegetable-based oils only. So when you’re finished with these spoons, you can detach the handles and pop them in the compost or ground without any ill effect!
Why do we love them for our family?
Silicone is a naturally antimicrobial material, with low taste and low odour, and poses no risk to our bears. It’s also temperature resistant and won’t act as a heat conductor, which means it’s not going to become hot to touch. It provides the perfect soft and smooth surface to soothe little gums. With no sharp or rough edges, its flexible natures make exploring new foods and textures fun!
Combined with natural beechwood handles, these spoons are lightweight and easy to hold. Great for bubs who are just weaning on to solids or little ones who are learning the art of self-feeding!
