The preparation of our food is equally as important as to how it is grown. Much of the worlds plastic waste comes from how our food is transported and cooked.
The average person in the western world consumes a credit card's weight in plastic every week through the normal preparation and consumption of food every week.
BPA is especially good at leaching into canned foods that are acidic, salty, or fatty, such as coconut milk, tomatoes, canned fish, soup, and vegetables. Each year about 6 billion pounds of BPA and 18 billion pounds of phthalate esters are created worldwide—that's a lot of problematic pound-producing plastics!
At Kā-Uri Unearthed we are working to reduce the amount of plastic we have in our environment and the energy that is used to produce and prepare our food.
Our cooking utensils and homewares are made from the worlds oldest workable wood preserved for 45,000 years beneath the peat marshes of the far north.
These timbers carry a sacred mauri(energy) that will help to reduce harm to your food and environment. We have created these pieces to be functional not decorative and ornamental. These are utensils that can be handed down from generation to generation that bring the Shinrin Yoku forest bathing experience into your home.
