The push for eco-friendly products shows no signs of stopping. People everywhere are making an effort to support environmentally conscious companies, and two-thirds of consumers feel it’s important for a brand to be sustainable (IBM). We couldn’t agree more, and we’re more focused than ever on bringing more eco-friendly products to you.
We’re pleased to introduce Ekobo, our newest retail brand partner.
Let’s get to know Ekobo and what it’s doing to make a difference.
Designed For Good
Ekobo was founded in France in 2003 by a family who recognized a need for reusable, non-toxic dishware for kids. The mission would soon become to improve the way we engage with people and our planet. While bamboo started as the center of Ekobo’s work, it evolved over the years to introduce other sustainable materials like cork, rePET fabric, food-grade silicone and GOTS-certified organic cotton. After years of expertise in Fairtrade bamboo handicraft and a background in product design, founders Boo and Bruno developed what is now Ekobo’s signature BIOBU® bamboo fiber eco-composite. Nearly two decades later, the brand is known for its style as well as its sustainability and forward-thinking design.
Check out some of our favorite new styles:
From table, to fridge, then off to work. This store-and-go container takes you full-circle. Featuring Ekobo’s signature FSC-certified bamboo fiber base and a 100% leakproof, premium food-grade silicone lid. Use it to serve up a saucy side or salad, then pop the lid on any left-overs and pack the same bowl for lunch the next day! While using, suction the lid on the bottom of the cup - it won't get lost in the mix, but it also doubles as a non-slip surface.
Ekobo Rectangular Bento Box
Goodbye plastic baggies, hello bamboo fiber! This roomy bento box features a removable divider so you can customize your bento to your lunch, not vice versa. Its top doubles as a plate, and it's all held together by a sturdy, black silicone band.
Ekobo products comply with food safety standards around the world, including FDA, LFGB and REACH. They’re free of BPA, PVC, Phthalates, Lead, Cadmium and Mercury.
It Gets Better
