1. How our bamboo dinnerware is made?
Our GET FRESH dinnerware is made from bamboo fibers, cornstarch and food-safe mineral pigment that is added to the bamboo fiber.

4. Are the colors on bamboo dinnerware non-toxic?
Our GET FRESH dinnerware is not coated or painted with anything, that is why you needn’t worry about flaking, peeling, or leaching of colour.
The vibrant colours come from a minute amount of food-safe mineral pigment that is added to the bamboo fibre and mixed into the product, rather than layered or coated on top. This process ensures that your bamboo dishes last longer and remain safe, regardless of age and use.
5. How durable is GET FRESH dinnerware?
We are doing our best to increase the durability of our products by thickening most of them. But unfortunately, nothing is completely indestructible and we cannot guarantee that our bamboo products won’t break when dropped or thrown on the tile floor, for example. They can merely crack but will never break into tiny sharp pieces, as ceramic or glass alternatives do.
