FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Portland, OR - Bambu announced today, the company's sustainably designed products are featured in a recently released global publication, Made from Food Waste, developed by MATREC (Sustainable Materials and Trends) in Italy. It is an international publication produced to highlight advances in eco-design and eco-innovation, due to the EXPO Milano 2015, whose theme is "feeding the planet, energy for life." MATREC has developed this international publication to expose design products and materials made from food waste.
Bambu is a featured brand in the publication, with a focus on bambu's reclaimed Coconut Bowls. These coconut shells were reclaimed from a manufacturer in Vietnam who harvests the coconut for its meat. Rather than burn the shells, we created a program to buy them back, and put them through the same process as our lacquerware. The result is an organic shaped, bowl from nature, and suitable for snacks and foods.
