    Bamboo is also a relatively good material in terms of resource use. Bamboo grows incredibly fast and if managed properly bamboo stands can be harvested indefinately. Since bamboo is technically a grass it doesn’t create “wood” and so doesn’t necessarily fall into the the “sustainable wood” category Whitefish mentioned.

    I have a set made out of bamboo, one of the more sustainable materials (actually a grass not a wood) and they are great and even safe for meats if you clean them properly.
