Go Green with Wood Bento Boxes
With the world becoming highly aware of the increasing impacts of global warming, the go green initiative is being pushed forward in urgent earnest by one and all. It is every one’s duty to use reusable sustainable materials for items that they use daily. One such item that is used daily in Japan is the bento box and this article will provide you with a brief overview on the need to switch over to the Bamboo or Wood Bento Boxes.
Wood Bento Boxes are made from a Chamfer and Bamboo, both are sustainable naturally growing which are tough, water-resistant with their leaves known to offer beneficial qualities. They are both rapidly growing materials contributing towards a higher percentage of oxygen release in comparison to other trees. Being bio-degradable they leave minimal impact on the environment. Additionally, wood is anti-bacterial by nature and this proves an added advantage.
Against this background it makes sense to opt for this type of reusable sustainable packaging. If everyone wants to lessen their environmental footprint switch to wood made products which can be used for many years and safely recycled once they no longer suit their purpose. Children in many schools are encouraged by school authorities to do away with plastic packaging and utensils which only go towards increasing the piles on landfills around the country.
Chamfer and Bamboo Bento boxes are the perfect alternative for packing your lunch for school or place the workplace. They are available in a variation of shapes and sizes to suit most needs and are especially great for packing rice dishes, pastas, sandwiches, salads, and whole grain items. Wrapping food in dried leaves of the bento boxes enables it to remain fresh and tasty. You also get a few colour options like a light and dark brown depending on the type of the wood you choose to use for your bento box.
All wood bento boxes come with a solid lid and base. Most have a wooden insert; some use a food grade plastic or ABS with a melamine coating. Besides being vegan friendly, the box scores on three counts.
What About Maintenance?
Maintenance of Wood Bento Boxes is no big deal either. Stuck rice grains or other food particles can be scraped off after washing with a soft camp cloth. Stains can be cleansed by adding a mild detergent to the cloth but always using a scratch free product.
In areas of humid weather, it is good if you keep Wood Bento Boxes dry and stacked away as the humidity can affect the quality of the wood used. In regions of dry and hot climates the boxes should be stored away from sunlight as this can also make the timber buckle.
Wood Bento Boxes, Eco-friendly and beneficial to the environment
It's that everyone that uses plastic packaging for their meals to start thinking about substituting those harmful, non-biodegradable products in favour of something that is eco-friendly and beneficial to the environment. Best of all you can enjoy nutritious meals on the go and do your wee bit towards the environment by scrapping the use of plastic containers and bags and opting for Chamfer and Bamboo Bento Boxes.
