Why choose our sustainable bowls
For nearly four years, we've dedicated ourselves to providing eco-conscious parents with a reliable source for eco-friendly toys and tableware. Today, we're excited to share why our bowls stand out as a top sustainable choice for Australian families.
Australia's environmental awareness has surged in recent years, and the adoption of eco-friendly tableware presents an opportunity to make a lasting impact on both our environment and our children. In this article, we'll delve into the significance of eco-friendly tableware for kids in Australia, particularly focusing on locally-made products with recycled content, and offer insights on making informed choices while steering clear of greenwashing.
Our bowls are Australian-Made from Recycled Milk Bottles
It's rare to find tableware that's not only made in Australia but also crafted from recycled Australian milk bottles. Our bowls check both these boxes. Plus, we prioritise your child's safety by ensuring our plastic is independently verified as free from harmful chemicals like BPA and phthalates.
By manufacturing in Australia, we not only support our local industry and Australian jobs but also contribute to a smaller carbon footprint and reduced transport-related emissions.
Recycled Content: our preferred pick for eco-friendly tableware
Recycled content offers distinct advantages, particularly in Australia's unique context, compared to other eco-friendly options, such as biodegradable materials:
- No consumer biodegradation system: Australia currently lacks widespread consumer biodegradation facilities, making recycled content a better choice. Biodegradable products will often end up in landfill, whereas recycled content can be re-recycled multiple times.
- Resource conservation: Eco-friendly tableware with recycled content conserves resources by utilising materials that have already undergone processing, thereby reducing the environmental impact.
- Lower Energy Consumption: The production of recycled content typically consumes less energy compared to manufacturing biodegradable materials from scratch.
Nurturing sustainability from an early age
Children are the future guardians of our environment. Our eco-friendly tableware, with its vibrant colors and playful designs, not only appeals to them but also sets a sustainable example. It fosters conversations about conservation, recycling, and environmental impact, ensuring that our kids grow up with a strong sense of environmental responsibility.
How to choose sustainable tableware in Australia
If you're in search of eco-friendly tableware for your children in Australia, consider these top tips:
- Check Recycled Content: Look for products that specify the percentage of recycled materials used.
- Support Local Manufacturing: Opt for items made in Australia to reduce transportation-related emissions and support local businesses.
- Avoid Misleading Claims: Double check eco-friendly claims; seek certifications and transparent information about materials and sourcing.
By opting for locally-made eco-friendly tableware with recycled content, you not only make a responsible choice but also align with Australia's growing environmental consciousness. Together, we contribute to the reduction of plastic pollution in Australia's pristine ecosystems and promote sustainability education. It's a small but meaningful step towards safeguarding our unique environment while advocating for a greener, more responsible way of living.
