This Thanksgiving, take a break from the traditional fine china and roast turkey for a holiday with a little more color, spice, and of course, bamboo.

The Dining Room Table: For an easy cleanup without the worry of washing or guilt of paper plates, set your table with bamboo veneer wear.  The disposable plates are lightweight, strong, and with their raw, earthy tones, perfect for an attractive presentation.  Our bamboo flatware is sturdy, reusable, and a worry free alternative to grandma’s antique silver.   Leftover veggies and grains can be stored in our bamboo compost pail with charcoal filters and removable liner for quick, odorless, and  painless trips out to the backyard heap.

Dinner Preparation: All good chefs know that the right cooking tools can be just as important as quality ingredients.  Bamboo spoons, spatulas, tongs and strainers are not only sustainable alternatives to hardwoods and synthetics, but surprisingly heat resistant, robust, and light.  Cutting boards do not generally scar as badly as their plastic counterparts, and can also double as beautiful presentation pieces.  Check out the surf and ukelele cutting boards here at Bambu Batu!

The Meal: Add a little Asian flare to your meal by cooking your turkey in bamboo tubes or as a veggie option, sauté young shoots with mushrooms and your favorite bit of green. If you prefer pork to poultry, you might enjoy this recipe that features spicy bamboo shoots.

Clothing:  When dressing for Thanksgiving, fabric with a little stretch is key for maintaining comfort when in possession of a very full belly.  Bamboo is the perfect material for creating the softest, most flexible, and stylish wear for the holidays.  Relax in a pair of lounge pants, impress your guests in one of our many beautiful dresses,  or show your gratitude for your food and where it is produced with one of our locally printed “Support Your Local Farmer” t-shirts!

Express your thanks for a grass that keeps on giving this year!  With applications from clothing to food, it is hard not to be amazed by such a remarkable plant!

We owe a lot to our fathers.  In addition to half of our genetic material, we can credit our dads with the clothes on our backs, the advice in our brains, and the love in our hearts.  They have taught us how to ride our bikes, repair our cars, and turn off the lights after leaving the room.  This Father’s Day, Bambu Batu offers a few ways to show your pop a little appreciation!


Cutting boards: For the Master of the Kitchen, Surf King or Rockstar, check out our durable bamboo cutting boards in the shapes of wine bottles, surf boards and ukeleles.

Bamboo boxers:  Mr. Practical doesn’t want too much of a fuss.  You know, “Just get me something I can use”.  How about a pair of super-soft, comfortable bamboo boxers?  Everyone could use a pair of underpants, and even the most utilitarian of dads will admit that a little luxury now and again can be as much of a necessity as food and shelter.

Lounge Pants:  What dad doesn’t enjoy a good lounge now and again? With a fabulously soft, buttery feel, these pants are great for hanging out, practicing yoga or just sleeping in dreamy bliss!

T-Shirts: Whether he wants a cool, short-sleeve basic top for summer, a stylish icon top from Arbor, or something to rep his SLO pride, Bambu Batu has got your dad covered.  Show him you care with simple and sustainable fashion!

Give your father the gift of bamboo, a symbol of strength, flexibility, resilience and sustainability.  He helped to make you, now help make him happy!
