Protect your counters and tabletops with this attractive and durable bamboo trivet. The Silicone Round Trivet, by Totally Bamboo, measures 7-7/8-inch in diameter and is 1/2-inch thick. It's made of strong bamboo with non-slip silicone accents. Bamboo is a great material because it is attractive, super strong and a rapidly renewable resource. Bamboo is a grass that grows to a harvestable height of 60-feet in about 3 to 5 years, growing as much as 2-feet per day. It has an extensive root system that continually sends up new shoots, naturally replenishing itself. It does not require replanting, making it one of the most renewable resources known. Totally Bamboo uses 'Moso' timber bamboo which is neither a food source nor a habitat for the Giant Panda. No dyes or stains are used in the manufacturing process. The pleasing designs are created by using the naturally occurring variations within the wood grain. Totally Bamboo prides itself on using only premium hand-selected bamboo, innovative design, exemplary craftsmanship, and fair labor policies. Trivet is easy to maintain; simply wash with warm water and use Totally Bamboo’s revitalizing oil, occasionally, to extend the life and keep it looking beautiful.
