Green Ostrich Utensil Set Review

As a wannabe crunchy family we try to live green as much as we can.  We reuse and recycle, we   always have reusable shopping bags in the van for shopping trips and use eco-friendly/homemade cleaning supplies, and detergent.  However, there is always room for improvement.  Ideally I would like for our family to make the switch to all bamboo products for our plates, utensils, mixing bowls-bamboo is more sustainable and a natural product.  Not to mention extremely durable and able to stand the test of time--and here is this house, THAT'S A MUST. 

So you can imagine how pumped I was when Green Ostrich asked me to review their To-Go Ware Bamboo Utensil Set.  The set includes a bamboo fork, spoon, knife, and a set of chopsticks in a handy little carrying case.  All of the utensils are dishwasher safe, stain resistant, and heat resistant.  LOVE LOVE LOVE THE DISHWASHER SAFE PART!

We have all used this set at one time or another recently.  Usually everyone fights over who gets the chopsticks when we eat go eat sushi/Chinese as a family.  Yes, I have a 1st grader that uses chopsticks better than I do--its a total embarrassment but whatever.  I am a work in progress.  The utensils rock because even Clyde can use them without any problems and he is usually the one who still wants to use toddler/baby silverware.

Besides using these at work or school, the Utensil Set would be great for camping and picnics.  The set has made a permanent home in our glove compartment for out of town trips, or fast food in the car that needs utensils.

I think these are a great product and would not mind converting my whole family to a set like this!  
Green Details:
- Carrying case is made out of recycled PET plastic (plastic tea, juice, soda, and water bottles)
- Bamboo is 100% biodegradable and eco-friendly
- Each utensil is made of a single sheet of bamboo so there is no glue used in the manufacturing of them
- The utensils are sealed with a natural, vegan, food-safe sealant made of Potassium Permanganate (a water-soluble salt often used as a disinfectant), Acetic Acid (an organic, relatively weak acid found universally in food, water, and soil), Heptane (most frequently used as oil repellant, distilled from the resin of the Jeffery Pine and the fruit of the Petroleum Nut Tree), and Ethanol (sugar-based and the most commonly used form of alcohol)
- They contain no BPA, PVC, phthalates, lead, arsenic, mercury, or chromium
