The founders of TrueRide custom skate parks have turned their project remnants into an up and coming cutting board dynasty: Epicurean Cutting Boards. They are not only made in the USA, the company is based out of Duluth, MN!
What I like about them:
These boards are eco-friendly and made of recycled materials. Recycled milk jugs, post-consumer waste paper and corrugated cardboard are pressed into a variety of shapes and sizes suited to any kitchen adventure. See website for products: www.epicureancs.com/
They are easy to clean (you can pop them in the dishwasher), and they are non-porous so they don’t harbor any nasty bacteria. No need to oil or bleach the boards either. They are heat resistant to 350 degrees and super durable. And because the material bends under the weight of your knife, they help your tools stay nice and sharp.
Featured in Food Network Magazine, Country Living, Men’s Health, as well as many others, and receiving certification from the Forest Stewardship Council and the National Sanitary Foundation, these guys are definitely a great addition to your kitchen. We have the Nutmeg made of corrugated cardboard. We love it!
Wondering where to find them?! They are for sale right down the street and online on their website.
