Totally Bamboo's Poly-Boo Cutting Board is both beautiful in presentation and functional for use in the kitchen. The 2-in-1 board is double sided and provides a white, plastic polymer surface to be used when preparing fish and meat and a bamboo side that is perfect for preparing or serving foods such as fruits and vegetables. With this single board you really have the best of both worlds. Each side has a cute and convenient graphic, displaying what the side is best used for and features a functional, silicone lined carry handle. The board also features a hermetic seal to prevent leaking between the silicone and bamboo or polymer layers. Overall, the board measures 15 by 11-3/4-Inch. Board is easy to maintain; wash by hand with warm water and use Totally Bamboo's revitalizing oil on bamboo side occasionally to extend the life and keep it looking beautiful. Bamboo is the natural alternative for all things wood. It is the fastest growing plant on our planet and does not require any special care to grow. In fact, it is a grass that produces more oxygen than a hard wood forest of comparable size, it helps to reduce carbon dioxide gases blamed for global warming and it helps to prevent soil erosion through its widespread root system and large canopy. At Totally Bamboo, we are proud to say we use only the highest quality bamboo, harvested at the optimum age of 5 years from our own bamboo forests. There are over 1200 species of bamboo; however, we choose to use "Moso" timber bamboo for its strength, density and versatility. As an added bonus, it is not a habitat for pandas. Our factories adhere to a very stringent protocol for curing and processing the bamboo, ensuring the highest quality product. We take steps to ensure that our employees are well taken care of and work in a safe and hazard free environment. Our goal is continuous improvement through design, developing new, unique and innovative products which appeal to the environmentally conscious.
