Every summer, we have a full house. My stepsons will spend the next few months with us, and whenever they’re here, it becomes painfully obvious to me that we don’t own enough plates and silverware to accommodate all of us at meal time. Unable to find a dinnerware set I liked at my favorite thrift stores, I recently started looking for more affordable options that would hopefully also be durable. I stumbled on these bamboo plates at CB2, and I knew I’d found what I was looking for.
As much as I love the bamboo dinnerware from Viva Terra that I featured a few weeks ago, they just weren’t right for our needs.These solid color plates from CB2 will fit right in with our existing tableware, which features shades of red, orange and yellow. I’m also incredibly thankful that this bamboo melamine is dishwasher safe and less likely to break than ceramic. While our kids are used to using ceramic and they’ve never dropped a plate, accidents happen. Plus, when we’re in the mood for a picnic in the park, these will be a lot safer and lighter to take with us.
And did I mention the great price? See for yourself below…
Why It’s Green:
- Made of bamboo
