Totally Bamboo's Tree of Life is the most unique cutting and serving board ever designed. If you look closely at this solid bamboo board, you can actually see over 800 laser-etched images of exotic and endangered animals. This double sided board can be used for cutting and serving and would make an excellent cake plate. Overall it measures 15-1/2 x 15-1/2 x 1-1/2-Inch. Easy care; simply wash board by hand with warm water. Occasionally use Totally Bamboo's Revitalizing Oil to extend life and beauty of board. Totally Bamboo decided to make a statement via the "Tree of Life" product line by donating a percentage of the proceeds of sales to the National Forest Foundation, a U.S. based non-profit organization that has planted 4 million trees since its inception in 2008. For each dollar donated one tree is planted. Totally Bamboo encourages and supports reducing the widespread practice of clear-cutting our precious forests by giving consumers a sustainable alternative. Bamboo is the alternative for all things wood. It is one of the fastest growing plants on the planet and is actually a species of grass that can produce more oxygen than hard wood forests of comparable size. It helps prevent soil erosion through its widespread root system and large canopy supporting a wide range of wild life.
