our favorite wood + bamboo products
It's not always economical to make your life more 'green', however, Mother Nature has given us a wonderful resource: wood. Switching some of the items in your home to safer materials is now easier and more affordable than ever. Wood is anti-bacterial making it perfect for your green home and for baby toys!
A great choice for wood products is Bamboo. It has recently become popular among homeowners for flooring but a long time ago it was used for bridge supports and other places that we now use concrete.
Now you can use entire kitchen sets made from Bamboo, from serving utensils to hot plates, and even bowls. Bamboo doesn't hold moisture well and therefore doesn't fester germs. It is best when harvested at full maturity and the reason it is affordable is because it regenerates at a much faster rate than other trees.
Bamboo will grow to full maturity in 3 years!
As for wood, it doesn't leach any toxins into food, hot or cold, and it also lasts a very long time if treated well.
Wood toys are unique as wood itself is always unique. As the say on Little Sapling Toys site - " Every wood piece tells its own story and is gorgeous in its own way. This is what makes toys made out of wood so amazing! Not one is alike."
