Zungleboo products are sustainably made with real plants.
We use a natural composite of natural bamboo fibers and a corn starch bioplastic called PLA. This "bio-compound" is free of BPA and melamine and strong enough for use in home goods such as dinnerware and kitchenware.Bioplastic (biopolymers) is derived from plants, and considered far more sustainable alternative to petroleum-based plastic commonly used in consumer products, such as PP (polypropylene), PET (polyethylene terephthalate), and PS (polystyrene). As Zungleboo products are manufactured using one of the most fast-growing, renewable crops bamboo and corn, bioplastics manufacturing is known to result in 75~80% lower greenhouse gas emissions when compared to conventional non-renewable plastics manufacturing, and use less than half the non-renewable energy.
Zungleboo tableware is not just sustainable, but also non-toxic and free from harmful substances. There is zero melamine or BPA and no toxins (lead, cadmium and phthalates) in our products. All Zungleboo products are tested by third party labs to meet food contact standards set by FDA CFR21 and California Proposition 65.
