Bamboo plate for baby
Plastic is found in many everyday products. We are trying to reduce it as much as possible. We are pleased to offer you a pretty bamboo version to replace the colourful plastic plates that our children love so much! They will fall in love with these adorable, stylish elephants and cubs!
Wash the plate by hand and make sure to dry thoroughly before putting it away. You can remove the silicone suction cup to thoroughly dry the area underneath.
The plate is treated with a corn- and soy-based oil. To maintain the quality of the bamboo, we suggest applying a thin layer of natural vegetable oil from time to time. Use a paintbrush or cloth to coat the plate with oil, wiping off the excess with a clean cloth.
Please note that the laser engraved designs could fade away with use, scrubbing and cleaning.
It is important never to put the plate in the dishwasher or microwave.
If properly maintained, the plates should last for years; you can go ahead and give them away or hand them down to another child when yours outgrows them.
At the end of their lifespan, you can put them in the trash because most compost facilities cannot process larger pieces of bamboo/wood.

Welcome to Shades of Green, I’m so glad you’re here!
When I opened the store in 2009 there wasn’t many options for sustainable, earth friendly products in our community. It was a bit hard at first to source these kinds of products but now with so many people getting on board with the Zero waste movement there’s so much more available. We love to support Local and Canadian Made products as much as possible but when we do source products made outside of North America we make sure they are Made responsibly in Fair Trade practices.
Thank you for visiting the shop and wherever you are on your earth loving journey we are here to help. Small changes everyday can make a big impact.
