Behind the Design: Safety, Testing & Materials
The safety of our products is important for you, for your family and all of us. We put an extra level of care into the safety of our products. We are happy to share with you our product information so you can make informed decisions about the products you use, and the type of business you wish to support. We test to Federal and State standards.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our products and processes. bambu offers safe, well-designed, high-quality products.
Renewable Ideas ®
Natural Renewables. bambu® uses only natural, renewable materials because we know you don’t want toxic chemicals in or around your food, or home.
Materials. We use food safe oils, water-based adhesives, natural finishes and wastewater management practices in our production. Our USDA certified organic utensils and kids products go one step further. These are finished with a certified organic oil.
Sustainably Sourced. Our certified organic products are made from sustainably sourced bamboo. The source is certified to be free of pesticides, fertilizers, and chemicals.
Tested Food Safe. As you would expect, our products meet or exceed food safety testing. All our products are tested and must pass independent international laboratory testing before we can label our products 'food safe.'
3rd Party Certified. In order to meet the requirements of the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) and the Consumer Product Safety Council (CPSC), we use an independent third party to test and certify that our products comply with product safety requirements.
Why we don’t recommend mineral oil. Mineral Oil is a petroleum-based oil. Instead, we recommend 'Bamboo and Wood Grain Finishing Oil' our all -natural nourishing formula.
When it comes to children, we take extra measures to ensure our products meet the safety requirements for children. The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act authorizes the Consumer Product Safety Commission to verify compliance of a product based on safety considerations and regulations. CPSC establishes testing protocols to simulate normal or reasonably foreseeable use, damage, or abuse in which toys and other articles intended for use by children may be subjected. bambu KIDS products are tested by a CPSC accredited testing facility. Certificates of conformity may be made available on request.
We work with consumer protection professionals to keep apprised of relevant changes from the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission). We invite you to learn more at www.cpsc.gov.
We consider several aspects when thinking about packaging; what is it made from, where does it come from, how is it processed, its durability and end of life disposal.
Plastic Free Initiative
We strive to minimize the amount of packaging we use but also the type of material used. We look for ways to reduce waste at every opportunity. We are committed to finding solutions to minimize packaging and use paper from managed sources, and printed using low impact inks.
bambu "Green Solutions' Packaging Practices
• Packaging cards, boxes and hangtags are made from FSC-certified papers.
• Catalogs are digital and when printed, small batch, we use FSC-certified paper that is 100% chlorine free and at least 20% recycled content.
• Packaging is printed using low VOC vegetable-based inks.
• Inner and master cartons are plastic free, using paper tape & labels.
