My name is Paris Michailidis and I am the co-founder of My Little Panda. Working together with my business partner David Mejias Fuentes, I founded the company because I wanted to make a difference, a difference that would be positive for the environment and a difference that would help preserve and protect our planet for future generations. Combining the minimalist and contemporary design principles with the beauty of bamboo we created a series of cutlery that are natural, beautiful and sustainable.
Desire to change
Plastic pollution is an issue that has gained increasing traction with both consumers and businesses, as the public has become more and more aware of the polluting, toxic effects plastic usage is having on the environment. Since the 1950s, humans have produced over 8 billion tonnes of plastic, with 6 billion tonnes ending up as pollutant waste. It can take up to 400 years for a piece of plastic to naturally degrade, and much of the plastic waste we have produced has found its way into both the food chain and our waters - plastic now accounts for up to 80% of the debris present in our Earth’s oceans.
At My Little Panda is to make a meaningful and positive contribution to minimising global plastic use and its toxic effects. We wanted to give people/you the opportunity to make a difference as well by giving you the choice of using products that are non-toxic, BPA-Free, 100% eco-friendly and sustainable. My Little Panda pioneers are on a mission to build a global brand to improve the way we eat while on the go.
