Tableware & Utensils
Cooking up a storm shouldn't have to lead to piles of forever plastic and composite products that are difficult to recycle.View all products
- Materials like silicon and plastic are derived from fossil fuels and therefore create more demand for oil
- Cheap plastic utensils tend to bend, break and (if you're forgetful) melt!
- Plastic and silicon are not biodegradable and can cause harm to nature as they break down and create microplastics which can't be filtered by water treatment plants
From natural materials to more longer-lasting options, switching to one of our more eco-friendly kitchen utensils can help reduce your impact while cooking and eating. Utensils made from natural materials can outlast plastic when it's stress-tested, and won't create microplastics as they break down.
Utensils made from recycled materials reduce the need for virgin plastics and can help when you require something which is particularly flexible. Some can also be recycled after use, which again reduces its impact. Just make sure to check for our Recyclable accreditation on the product page.
Wooden utensils will break down much quicker than plastic utensils, especially when they're disposed of properly. They can also last longer than some of the plastic options, which can bend, break or become misshapen when put under too much heat. Looking for alternatives that are sourced from FSC-certified wood means you're also supporting sustainably-managed forests
