These 3.5" Bamboo Paddle Picks are made from natural bamboo and feature a unique pointed and paddle end. They are perfect for use with hors d'oeuvres, beverages, and finger foods and can also be used with larger appetizers, kabobs, or satay dishes. These quality picks are more durable than traditional wood or plastic picks and are eco-friendly. Bamboo products are made from the part of the plant called the sheath. The sheath is the protective outer layer of the bamboo's culm that grows in young plants. When the plant has matured, the sheath falls off and is collected, cleaned, and boiled. Once the sheath has been laminated it is then pressed and bonded into the desired shape. This process is completely eco-friendly and does not involve the use of chemicals or toxins. Featuring a sleek design, these picks are a wonderful eco-friendly option.
