Bamboo products offer a lot of ways to replace traditional plastics and other materials that can hurt the environment. As the foodservice industry moves away from traditional materials, bamboo is quickly becoming one of the preferred alternatives. The benefits that it provides make bamboo better for the environment and appeal to customers and business owners. Here’s a look at PacknWood’s Buckaty Bowls, and why they are better salad containers then containers made from traditional materials.
Made from Bamboo Fiber
Perhaps the most defining feature of the Buckaty Bowls is that they are made out of bamboo fiber. Bamboo was chosen because it is readily available, biodegradable, compostable, and renewable. It also has a more natural look and feel than traditional materials, such as plastic. Bamboo fibers are used in a wide variety of products because of these benefits.
Bamboo is a fast-growing wood that is easy to work with and has been used by cultures around the world for centuries. New manufacturing processes make it easier than ever to extract bamboo fibers and turn them into products with different shapes and sizes. Because of this, PacknWood is able to offer Buckaty Bowls in 24 oz, 32 oz, and 50 oz variations with the same build quality and overall design. Unlike other paper products, bamboo works well for cold food options making it a great choice for salad bowls.
The feature that makes Buckaty Bowls better for the environment than traditional salad containers is that the bamboo fibers that it is made out of are biodegradable. Traditional materials, such as plastic and Styrofoam, a very long time to break down when disposed of. In many cases, these materials also release dangerous chemicals as they decompose. Bamboo is biodegradable, meaning that it will break back down into its natural elements without releasing harmful chemicals and it will break down in a relatively short amount of time.
Because of this, these Buckaty Bowls make great salad containers for takeout services or standard containers in high traffic restaurants. It makes it possible to significantly decrease your restaurant’s impact on the environment by switching to Buckaty Bowls over plastic and Styrofoam containers.
While Buckaty Bowls are good for the environment, they are also good for customers that like growing food at home. Bamboo is biodegradable, but it is also compostable. Home gardeners often struggle to find sources of composting material to feed their gardens. Bamboo is compostable and can be disposed of by adding it to their home composting piles. Since the number of home gardeners is increasing, they will appreciate a source of composting material that comes from their favorite restaurant.
