RePEaT utensil holders give plastic bottles a second shot at a useful life – and an opportunity to stay out of our landfills. Made out of RPET (recycled PET plastic), we like to call it “RePEaT” because it lets plastic reincarnate into something kinder and gentler.

BAMBOO UTENSILS FAQs:

How do I clean my utensils?
You can hand wash them with soap and water, but they will sustain the dishwasher.

Why bamboo?
There are so many great reasons to choose bamboo. First, it's beautiful. The delicate grain of bamboo, whether natural or amber-toned, makes it distinctive, refined, and enjoyable to eat with. Bamboo is extremely durable and can withstand a great deal of use without damage. It's stronger even than oak, and when laminated, bamboo is nearly as strong as soft steel. Bamboo doesn't swell or shrink as hardwoods do, and won't impart food flavors or staining.

Bamboo is not a tree-it's a grass, and it grows like one. Many species of bamboo can grow two feet or more a day. When it's harvested, it need not be replanted, because it will grow a new shoot from its extensive root system. So bamboo renews itself readily, unlike hardwood trees, which, once cut, are gone forever. Bamboo is an endlessly renewable resource.

It enhances the environment. Farmed bamboo stabilizes the earth with its roots, preventing erosion. It takes in greenhouse gasses and produces oxygen. In fact 35% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees. It can also provide habitat for birds and animals.

It is extremely versatile. Used in everything from housing, to fiber, to food, bamboo is an extraordinary resource. It provides a long-lasting, non-petroleum based material that has endless applications for use.

Where are your utensils made?
These To-Go Ware bamboo utensils are sourced and made in China by a small cottage industry factory. The forest the bamboo is sourced from has been personally visited by To-Go Ware's third party certifier and their audits assure that the sourcing and harvesting is sustainable and that they employ fair labor practices.

Are the utensils made with glue?
No, the utensils are made of a single sheet of bamboo. There are over 1,000 species of bamboo, ranging from groundcover to giant bamboo. Specifically, there are two main types of bamboo, running (spreading) and clumping (non-spreading). The clumping bamboo is the larger of the two, and at the very least can have a stalk 4 1/2" in diameter, and this is the kind of bamboo used to make our utensils. To-Go Ware does not use the smaller bamboo so often found in indoor planters.

What is the finish on the bamboo utensils made of?
Top grade, natural, vegan, food-safe sealant is used on the utensils to further ensure their durability. The main ingredients in the sealant include Potassium Permanganate (a water-soluable salt, often used as a disinfectant); Acetic Acid (an organic, relatively weak acid that gives vinegar its sour taste and pungent smell, found universally in food stuffs, water and soil); Heptane (most frequently used an an oil repellant, distilled from the resin of the Jeffery Pine and the fruit of the Petroleum Nut Tree, a tree found in the Philippines); and Ethanol (sugar-based and most commonly used form of alcohol, used as a solvent of substances intended for human contact or consumption, including scents, flavorings, colorings and medicines). Recent lab tests have shown that NO heavy metals were detected in the sealant, including lead, arsenic, mercury or chromium.

Can I take my utensils on a plane when I travel?
Yes, you can! No one carrying To-Go Ware has ever had a problem traveling with their gear. In fact our founder traveled with 50 sets of utensils in her suitcase and the only thing that got pulled was her shampoo!


BAMBOO UTENSIL WRAPS FAQs:

How do I clean my wrap?
The WEAVE cotton wrap will sustain the washing machine and the CONSERVE and RePEaT recycled plastic wraps can be hand washed with a wet sponge.

Where are WEAVE utensil wraps made?
The cotton holders for these utensil sets are crafted by WEAVE, a Burmese refugee women's project on the Thai-Burma border; all materials are sourced from Thailand. The recycled plastic wraps are made by CONSERVE, an NGO in New Delhi, India. The RePEaT utensil wraps are made of RPET, recycled plastic bottles, in China. All of To-Go Ware's partners are regularly monitored for human rights and environmental abuses by an independent third party monitor, in addition to a supplemental audit they've added with some additional standards they feel are important.

What are CONSERVE wraps made of?
At dawn every day employees deliver plastic shopping bags they’ve collected off the streets of New Delhi to the CONSERVE headquarters. The handles and bottoms of the plastic bags are snipped away and the open sheets washed with detergent on a cemented buffalo water trough. They are hung to dry on a clothesline and then layered together and pressed to make sheets that are designed, cut and stitched to make amazing, durable, environmentally friendly, recycled plastic products!

What are RePEaT wraps made of?
The material for the RePEaT utensils is made of RPET, recycled plastic bottles. Plastic soda and water bottles that would otherwise end up in the landfills are given a second shot at a useful life by being recycled into this amazingly strong, color-fast and water-resistant utensil holder. An added plus for RePEaT wraps is that the recycled material requires less energy during manufacturing than virgin PET materials.
