 7. What are the Outdoor dishes made of?

Our Outdoor dishes are made from renewable plant starches and bamboo. The entire collection is plastic-free, making it more eco-friendly than conventional melamine dinnerware. Plus, its manufacturing creates 80% fewer carbon emissions than plastic.

There’s slight variation and natural flecking in each piece from the bamboo — bringing beautiful texture to the table.

8. Are the Outdoor dishes biodegradable?

Our Outdoor dishes are made for the long-haul. They’re designed to be used (and reused) for all your years and days outdoors. However, should you wish to dispose of them, they are biodegradable in an industrial facility. You can use this link to find a facility near you.

9. Where are the Outdoor dishes made?

We work tirelessly to select suppliers that align with our business and sourcing needs, quality and performance standards, and who are committed to doing right by their workers and the environment.

Our Outdoor dishes are made in China — and we’ve personally visited the factory to make sure all of our sky-high standards are met.
