Food Contact

There are reports of tableware featuring low grade materials, including melamine, that can possibly leach into food in extreme circumstances. Our bamboo fibre manufacturer uses only a small amount of high grade melamine resin that has been tested to the most rigorous standards. Melamine has been used safely in the production of tableware for decades.

The European Food Safety Authority are currently evaluating the role and classification of plant fibres in food contact materials. In the interim they have requested suppliers act in responsible fashion with regard to testing.

What is Green Tones

Eco-friendly homeware, typically offered in bright and bold colours. Much of the range is moulded in Bamboo Fibre, a recycled composite.  Other materials include wood fibre.  The range has been developed over ten years.

More information on our Bamboo Fibre Products (See below for Wood Fibre)

Bamboo fibre mostly comprises powder ground out of either end of life bamboo products - such as  chopsticks, placemats, decking and scaffolding - or the offcuts from their production.  This powder is mixed with organic corn starch, a small amount of resin (melamine) for binding and food grade dyes.

Composition of Bamboo Fibre

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

70% Bamboo powder

20% Melamine Resin 

10% Cornstarch

Bamboo Fibre is BPA free.

Melamine Resin in Bamboo Fibre

Melamine resin is typically used to bind bamboo fibre composites. It is a polymer of the organic compound melamine and naturally occurring formaldehyde.  Progress has been made on alternative resins, but costs remain prohibitive. All reasonably priced Bamboo Fibre products contain melamine resin.

More information on our Wood Fibre products

We have recently added wood fibre products to our range. This mostly comprises fibres and organic pulp and is free from artificial binders and glues. 100% biodegradable. Wood fibre pots can be transplanted whole to protect more delicate roots, but are not reusable.
