TruBamboo is the leading manufacturer of bamboo houseware products in the U.S.A. Since 2003, TruBamboo has designed and produced environmentally sensitive products that showcase bamboo's unique combination of strength and beauty. Currently, TruBamboo operates and distributes three lines of products with over one hundred items throughout the world. Our innovative outlook on design allows us to continually create the "World's Finest Bamboo Products".
They begin by harvesting raw materials from one of the largest bamboo forests on earth. Only the finest stalks are chosen to be used in their precise manufacturing process which utilizes only the highest quality FDA approved food safe glues and employs the most durable construction methods. Flawless color consistency and unparalleled engineering combined with stylish packaging put TruBamboo's cutting boards in a class of their own.
The use of Bamboo in the home has boomed in the past few years and the benefits of using bamboo in the kitchen are endless. Unlike most other hardwood cutting boards, bamboo absorbs very little moisture and consequently does not shrink or swell making it a superior choice of material for cutting boards. Bamboo is even harder then maple which means the cutting board will have less visible knife marks over time. Not only is bamboo 16% harder than maple but it is lighter than oak and easy to handle. Bamboo also has anti-bacterial properties that make it an ideal material for cutting boards and cooking utensils.
Going Green in your kitchen is very easy with bamboo cutting boards and kitchen utensils. Many people are concerned about the environment and are trying to reduce their day to day use of potentially harmful plastics; these kitchen items are a great environmentally friendly, all-natural alternative to plastic cutting boards and kitchen utensils.
Bamboo also holds the promise of a cost effective and ecologically responsible alternative to the widespread clear cutting of our world's precious rainforest. Bamboo is actually a grass that grows to a harvestable height of 60 feet in just 3-5 years, growing as much as 6 feet per day. It has an extensive root system that continually sends up new shoots and naturally replenishes itself. Bamboo does not require replanting.
Bamboo must not be placed in the dishwasher (unless otherwise stated), must not soak in water and must be treated with mineral oil on a regular basis.
