Time to update those old plastic utensils you've been using for years. While it's normally best to use up what you have in old plastic containers before replacing them with sustainable alternatives, the one time to break this rule is when it comes to items that come in contact with the food you eat.
Switching to wooden or metal utensils eliminates any chance of toxins leaching into your food. And they just look better on the countertop than chewed up plastic utensils.
Oiled Olive Wood
Olive wood not only features a particularly attractive grain, it is also extremely hard due to its slow growth. The high oil content makes it water-repellent, non-slip and supple.
Wash by hand with warm water, soap and a soft sponge. Dry them before putting them away and every now and then run them down with regular olive oil or sunflower oil to preserve the beauty of the wood.
