What is a sustainable product?
A sustainable product needs to help the environment in which it is created, while also offering positive social and economic effects along the way. This goes for all stages of its production, from product development and manufacturing to shipping—and all the way through to its disposal.

Multi-purpose cutting/serving boards- Wooden cutting boards are currently undergoing a resurgence in popularity, and for many good reasons. Wooden boards are often referred to as self-healing because shallow cuts close up, helping to prevent the spread of bacteria. They are knife-friendly and, when properly cared for, can last for years. Hard woods such as acacia, teak, and maple make for some of the highest-quality cutting boards because they absorb less water and bacteria than other more porous woods. We carry a range of sustainable wooden boards perfect for holidays and gifting.
