GREEN TONES

Our colours are all green.

Green Tones offers a range of eco-friendly homeware, including garden planters, tableware, and pet bowls, in a selection of eye-catching colours. As one of the first suppliers of Bamboo Fibre in the UK, we have been developing our range for almost ten years.

BAMBOO FIBRE

What is it?

The Green Tones range is made from ‘bamboo fibre,’ a natural, durable, and practical alternative to plastics, ceramics and glassware. This composite of bamboo powder, organic resin, corn starch and recycled rice husks is bonded together high-grade melamine for durability. The fantastic colours are achieved using natural, food grade dyes that run evenly throughout the material.

Is it Biodegradable?

The simple answer is yes! At least 80% of it. Unlike the discarded plastics that are mounting up in land-fill sites, Bamboo Fibre has been designed to break down when buried in soil and exposed to the long-term moisture this provides. Do not worry, even under these conditions the process takes 2-3 years and bamboo fibre will not degrade in any other situation.

The Right Mix

Bamboo Fibre is made up of several natural ingredients. Whilst the exact balance can vary according to the item being produced, a typical batch of Bamboo Fibre comprises:

63% Bamboo powder - This is achieved by grinding down decommissioned/sterilised bamboo products, such as chopsticks, table mats and scaffolding.

20% organic resin – Melamine - This is required to bond the composite. We are working on other resins, but as yet no alternative with similar bonding capabilities has been discovered. All Bamboo Fibre products contain melamine, despite what other sellers may claim.

Cornstarch 10% - Helps bind the material and aids biodegradability.

6% Water - Good old H20 helps keep the composite malleable for the moulding process.

0.5% Water based paint - A natural, acrylic paint that is water based (or waterborne). Contains only natural resins and pigments that are certified foodsafe according to ROHS, REACH and FDA standards.

0.5% Natural Toner - Additional organic pigment that helps us achieve those striking colours. Also tested to ROHS, REACH and FDA standards.
