Lustables: Bamboo Wood Cutlery

Picnic anyone? This summer, load up on eco-friendly bamboo cutlery instead of the “naughty-but-light” plastic stuff.

These lightweight, reusable and chic bamboo forks, spoons and knives are made from organic bamboo, care of the company Core Bamboo. Because bamboo grows like grass – as in really fast – it is one of the most efficient materials on the planet. Plus, it’s 16 percent stronger than maple and 33 percent lighter than oak, meaning this cutlery is both strong and lithe.

A 12-piece bamboo cutlery set costs $36 and contains four place settings.
