    Cool Facts

    Bamboo is an organic, beautiful & earth friendly material known for
    its fast growth cycle and natural strength. Highly adaptable, bamboo
    can grow almost anywhere and protects the environment by generating
    more oxygen than other trees. While gaining popularity, bamboo is still
    mostly an untapped renewable natural resource.

    I have been thinking about buying these for months! I'm so psyched you did...since I already have my handy dandy on the go metal silverware I thought I should not just purchase something else just because it's so cool-consumer society and all. Now I can live vicariously through you. I'm holding out for Christmas-maybe I'll get these as a gift. If not I'll probably break down and get some soon. I love the carrying case.
    Btw, I love bamboo. Amazing stuff-fast growing and all. I like to think I had something to do with my parents opting to put down bamboo flooring in their new house. I touted the virtues and they were not convinced at first but them bamb! they next thing you know they tell me they decided on bamboo floors. Ahh bamboo...
