PORTLAND, OR (June 26, 2017) – Whether you’re in the front country or backcountry, what you eat with should be as good as what you eat. That’s the essence behind bambu® Outdoor, maker of elegantly simple, modern, and functional USDA-certified organic cooking and camping wares for your outdoor adventures. Today, the brand launches into the outdoor market bringing with it eco-friendly, beautifully designed, and locally-sourced products that are handcrafted for memorable user experiences.
“While popular for outdoor adventures, plastic products have a negative effect on the environment, taking away from the nature-based experience. We want to connect people more with the outdoors through our products,” said Rachel Speth, co-founder of bambu.
From sporks and cutting boards to utensil sets and spatulas, bambu’s outdoor-focused Grubware™ is a fresh, new, curated collection of nature-inspired kitchen tools that are made from native organic bamboo and other sustainable materials like cork, hemp, and organic cotton. A cornerstone product in the Grubware™ line is the Spoontula – half spoon, half spatula. This must-have for every backcountry camping kit is sturdy, super functional, and long enough to take on any application – from stirring mac and cheese to digging out the last delicious bits of your dehydrated dinner pouch. With the aim to help reduce outdoor enthusiasts’ reliance on plastic, all cutlery, utensils, and natural compostable plates are manufactured and sourced with the environment and end-user in mind.
The company was founded on the core value of: everything matters. In 2003, Speth and president and co-founder Jeff Delkin, created bambu – an eco-friendly home goods company, designing, producing, and marketing homewares made from renewable materials. With an acute attention to detail in how they conduct business, bambu cares deeply about who crafts each product, how it is crafted, and the customer that receives it. Seeing a need and direct connection for reusable, sustainable cooking and camping-ware products in the outdoors, Speth and Delkin are bringing handmade, durable tools to the market and changing the way people interact with nature.
“There are very few products made with all natural materials for those who enjoy the outdoors. Bambu Outdoor will give people access to natural products that will enhance their outdoor experiences,” said Delkin.
Bambu Outdoor will be showcasing its wares and making its debut as an exhibitor at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in Salt Lake City at the Salt Palace Convention Center from July 26-29. Stop by the Venture Out section (Booth #VO2060) and see for yourself what bambu Outdoor is all about.
