In search for materials with the strength to cut food while remaining compostable (and affordable), Greenlid chose sustainably grown Birch. Birch trees are an abundant and relatively fast-growing hardwood species that cause minimal destruction of biodiversity when cut down. Birch is a sustainable and durable choice that has less impact on the environment than alternative hardwoods, which have lengthier growing periods. They can also be grown more locally than other popular sustainable options, such as bamboo, that incur additional harm due to overseas shipping.
