Today, I am shamelessly helping to promote one of my friends’ latest kitchenware – an Eco-Fiber Bamboo Mixing Bowl Set which features five colorful nesting bowls, perfect for mixing batters, tossing salads, displaying fresh fruit, and serving dip, chips, popcorn and meals throughout the day. These bowls are made from bamboo fiber and are extremely sturdy and are dishwasher safe.
My friend Virginia and her husband are the brains behind Yumi™, the marketer and manufacturer of this product and a growing line of eco-friendly products, all made from renewable and sustainable plant material. In addition to being biodegradable, their products are made from renewable and sustainable plant material. I can’t wait to see what else Yumi™ comes up with as their products also use less energy to make than paper or plastic.
I am so excited for them! Their bowls are now being sold online at West Elm so anyone can buy them. Virginia sent me a set so I could test them out. I’ve been playing around with my bamboo bowls for the past week,
mixing up latkes,
using them for dips and snacks,
and serving dishes in them at dinnertime.
When I asked Virginia how long these decomposable bowls would last, I was shocked when she told me they would last for a minimum of 5 years — and that’s if I use them every day and put them in the dishwasher every single day.
I wasn’t going to post about these beautiful bowls for another week or so while I took more pictures of me using them, but I just found out they’re on sale for a limited time. I didn’t want you to miss out on the opportunity to buy these bowls for yourself, or as a gift for the holidays. They are such a great value that I bought several sets myself to give as gifts. Yumi Eco Solutions Bamboo Mixing Bowls are on sale through December 3, 2013 at West Elm for 30% off at $29/set (free shipping too!). I appreciate your help supporting our environment and this innovative new company!
Disclosure: I was provided a complementary set of bowls for my review. I truly do love these bowls – in fact, I bought several sets as gifts for the holidays.
