7 Flatware Sets for Sustainable Living
Flatware sets are some of the most used items in the kitchen, so non-toxic flatware is the best option for every healthy home. Safe materials like stainless steel, silver, or even bamboo offer unique eco-friendly cutlery options for the conscious kitchen and ensure a safe product for you and the environment. Read on to discover the best silverware sets, available in a wide range to suit each interior design style.
Bamboo flatware sets are the perfect sustainable option for to-go cutlery. For instance, the plant itself grows quickly and requires little water and no pesticides. Further, as a material, bamboo creates non-toxic, biodegradable, and naturally antibacterial products. Bambu’s set is to replace disposable cutlery for events and get-togethers. It’s made from organic, compostable, bamboo, as opposed to more conventional single-use plastic. Conversely, The Eco Warrior’s bamboo set is to replace any to-go cutlery that might be on offer to you while out and about. Therefore, it’s longer-lasting, and includes chopsticks to ensure a well-rounded set. At the end of it’s lifespan, it’s compostable and biodegradable.
Buying vintage is always a good idea for sustainability. It utilizes what already exists, reducing the need to create more. Also, sourcing vintage silverware is alluring because of the interesting design potential. EtuHome and Food52 agree with this, and offer interesting ways to take part. EtuHome’s found silverware comes in sets of 5 and offers a unique, one-of-a-kind table setting. Each non-toxic piece is a different design, but all are silver-plated bronze or copper, with stainless steel knife blades. Food52’s set is for those who would rather choose which utensils they need, as they offer spoons, knives, and forks in sets of 4. While each is a unique vintage piece, all are non-toxic, silver-plated with stainless steel knife blades.
