Stories Bamboo Lunch Set

Made for eating-on-the-go, the My Little Panda Bamboo Lunch Set is ideal for those always on the move. It's always nice to get a compliment about something you own, but there's an extra sense of satisfaction when you also know you're doing some good with it.

"Containing a bamboo knife, fork, spoon, pair of chopsticks, straw and accompanying coconut cleaning brush."

Bamboo Lunch set StoryYears of working within London, working for the city and seeing how much waste is produced in our daily lives, we wanted to give something back. Seeing how much plastic is used on lunch breaks and in canteens, we wanted to produce something that would encourage people to have a more positive ecological impact through the simple, everyday purchasing and consumer decisions they make. Not only did we want something practical though, but also aesthetically pleasing and a conversation starter, something people would be proud to carry around with them. This is how we came up with the Bamboo Lunch Set.

Lightweight LunchingEating on the go has become part and parcel of modern living, with grabbing lunch at the office or having a meal on the move, as you head out for the evening, a regular occurrence. The Bamboo Lunch Set is made with this in mind with being lightweight, compact and easily portable as the core principles behind its design. The naturally lightweight properties of bamboo makes this full complement of cutlery easy to sling in a handbag, backpack or desk drawer so that you’re never without the utensils you need. Containing a bamboo knife, fork, spoon, pair of chopsticks, straw and accompanying coconut cleaning brush, you should have everything you need for whatever the meal may be. All of this comes in its own roll-up carry case too. 

Environmentally Friendly & BiodegradableWade from sustainably sourced bamboo, the reusable cutlery in this set helps users cut down on single-use plastics. By keeping reusable cutlery on you, you need never have to pick up the plastic cutlery that is so often provided with take-away meals or fast food. Ditch the plastic for good and help reduce the wastage going to our landfills and ending up in the oceans. Sturdy and heat-resistant, this cutlery can be used time and time again and contains no harmful chemicals or BPAs so it doesn’t do any damage to you or Mother Nature. Organic and entirely biodegradable, the bamboo biodegrades when disposed of as does the carry case that is made of 80% organic hemp, a plant that uses significantly less water than most in its growth and production. Strengthened with 20% recycled cotton fibres, it is durable enough to withstand constant use and is machine washable as well.

DesignWe accept designs from any UK based students that are studying Product and Industrial Design. Most of our products are bamboo-based and it is vital that all of our products can be produced in an ethical and sustainable way. The design objective for any product submission is that it must contain no plastic and be completely chemical-free. If your design goes to production, you will receive a completed version of that product and £500. For more information, contact us.

AssemblyAssembled in the UK to make sure that all of our products adhere to British manufacturing and production standards, we offer employment opportunities to stay-at-home-parents, OAPs, and those who are less mobile, so that they can work to a timeframe that suits them. We deliver the products to assemble, directly to their door for ease. For enquiries about working for us, contact us.

“Our commitment to environmentalism and ethical production runs through the whole manufacturing process, from creation to customer."

Ethically SourceWe use a type of bamboo that grows up to three metres a year, and that doesn’t stop growing when it is harvested. Making sure that no chemicals or fertilisers are used in its growth, it is entirely organic so as to minimise the possibility of any negative environmental impacts during this process. Our products are then handmade by a family business in Vietnam, with stringent quality control procedures in place. We ask all of our producers and suppliers to submit videos of their working conditions to make sure our duty of care to those producing materials for us is being met. Our commitment to environmentalism and ethical production runs through the whole manufacturing process, from creation to customer.

Care & CleaningEasy to clean, these products just need to be washed in warm, soapy water, like most other cutlery or kitchen utensils. Rinse any soap off and dry and they can be reused time and time again.For a deep clean use vinegar and salt. Naturally heat resistant, they are also dishwasher safe without fear of splitting or splintering. In the unlikely event of the product starting to look dry, rub in any food oil (like olive or vegetable).
