We at The Cookbook People like to help Mother Earth whenever possible, so we carry some lovely items for the environment-conscious “green” person on your gift list who likes to receive gift items made from sustainable resources like bamboo.
If you are not “up” on the meaning of sustainable resources, a quick tutorial is that they are resources that can be replenished at the same or greater speed as the rate of consumption. Many items we now use in daily life are made from sustainable resources, such as clothing, flooring, construction materials, furniture, and linens.
For example, bamboo is a fast-growing plant (a grass, really) that can be commercially grown without fear of deforestation because it can be harvested, replanted and then harvested again fairly quickly (so there are no ugly bare hillsides). Sustainable resource bamboo has been known to grow up to 24 to 48 inches in a single day!
Our beautiful bamboo recipe box is one of our favorite gift items made from sustainable resources. It is a generous size with plenty of room for 4 x 6 recipe cards. We include nine pre-printed dividers to help you organize family recipes or recipe collections into neat categories. Our bamboo recipe box has a nice hard finish with a warm tone that goes with most any décor.
Our bamboo cookbook holder is another gift item made from sustainable resources. It holds large and small recipe books, Matilda-made family cookbooks, and printed recipes with equal ease. It can be adjusted to four different angles, and folds flat (to one inch deep) for storing in a drawer or inside a cupboard when not in use.
So, for a lovely gift item without negative impact to the environment, consider our bamboo recipe box or bamboo cookbook holder, or both. They are on sale and ready for shipping before the big holiday gift rush.
