I spend a lot of time on Kickstarter because I find that frequently the most innovative ideas are missing one simple but key ingredient..money. I have discovered some of the best purchases that we have made through sites like these – an invaluable resource!
My latest and greatest discovery is a wonderful company called Panda Packaging – a dynamic duo in London who spent some time travelling and researching and concluded that the greatest way to combat our single use plastic problem is to find a natural and renewable solution. Enter Panda Packaging with their coconut bowls, bamboo straws and palm spoons.
As you can see from the photo above I couldn’t wait to rip that package open and start using my new products! The coconut bowls were larger and more sturdy than I had imagined and the bamboo straws different widths for different drinks and so easy to clean (without pipe cleaner).
The most wonderful thing about these products is that they all come from renewable resources – the bowls and spoons actually from the same type of tree. The bamboo straws are fast regenerating, easy and inexpensive to grow and contain a natural binding agent called ‘Bamboo Kun’ within the fibers which fights off bacteria and fungus, making bamboo super hygenic (as if it’s not cool enough already).
Check out their instagram for some smoothie bowl inspiration! Here I am enjoying my first post workout smoothie in my new coconut bowl and my beautiful personalized bamboo straws. I am so looking forward to working with these guys in the future!
