From the beginning, we want to facilitate eco-gestures in real people's homes, to save space and offer solutions. From the very start, from the first idea, our designs are to simplify life, celebrate beauty, and fight against waste....it begins with the commitment to using eco-responsible and sustainable materials.
EKOBO chose bamboo because it is one of the most renewable resources on our planet. It has been recorded that bamboo can grow up to one meter per day. It requires no fertilizer, pesticide, or herbicide. A true ecological miracle, this grass regenerates itself without damage to the plant or its environment.
Our products are made in China, where the bamboo grows. It's collected from FSC-certified bamboo chopstick factories. After the raw bamboo is cut and shaped, we are able to collect the vegetal "waste" for its next life...
Each EKOBO product is unique because it's been dreamed up, imagined, invented ... inspired from our family life. When you buy one of our products, you can be sure our designs are never knock-offs, sourced from Alibaba, nor picked out of a factory catalog - you're buying the original.
We’re about transparency. Described as a biopolymer, our bamboo fiber is comprised of about half bamboo fiber, a highly renewable material, and half non-toxic food-grade A5 melamine binder, which helps to extend the life of the products (a sustainable practice!). All EKOBO products undergo regular and rigorous testing; you can rest assured that they comply with all food safety standards around the world (FDA, LFGB & REACH) and are free of BPA, PVC, Phthalates, Lead, Cadmium, and Mercury.
