New Natural

New Natural are a strongminded team of Aucklanders determined to help reduce plastic pollution.

Their first collection consists of all natural and fully compostable tableware.

We caught up with the team at New Natural to find out more.

Why bamboo?

Bamboo is a highly renewable and sustainable material, it matures 10 times faster than wood, it’s easily replaceable and grown without pesticides.

What are the benefits of your products for the consumer?

Just like plastic plates and cutlery in general, our tableware is also easy and practical. They have been certified safe to use for food consumption by FDA, they are reusable, microwaveable and dishwasher-safe. But, the best thing about our product is that they are made with plant-based materials with no plastic or chemical components added, so they are 100% compostable. At the end of its life, instead of polluting the environment, New Natural product will break down, leaving nothing behind.

What’s next for New Natural?

Ultimately, our long term goal is to replace more plastic products with New Natural’s technology and material, we want this to be the new norm. We are also looking to partner up with other businesses that are moving towards a more sustainable and eco-friendly practice.

Any advice you can share for people who feel powerless to help solve the problems created by plastic pollution?

Don’t feel daunted – just being aware of the problem is a great start and it will help you make better decisions about what you buy and consume. Better yet, by discussing the problem with your friends and family you can help create a collective awareness. Because it’s not about being perfect but being better.
