These 3.5" Bamboo Tongs are made from sustainable bamboo and are free from bleaches, dyes, resins, or other chemicals. They are ideal for serving samplers, appetizers, or fruit and cheese trays and are durable enough to prevent breaking or cracking during use. These quality tongs are eco-friendly and ideal for use during buffets and catering events as they feature an easy to use design that is accessible to staff and guests alike. 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 tongs are a great eco-friendly option.
