Product description

Special Spoon to reduce food waste | Balaenos®

The Balaenos® spoon for leftovers makes it possible to remove various contents from pots and containers, as far as possible and without leaving any residues.

Its special shape with different radii and flexible edges distinguishes it from conventional spoons, making it easier to collect or scrape out the remaining contents.

The spoons are made in injection moulding from thermoplastic in one operation. The material used for this is characterized by easy processability, durability, elasticity, a closed surface structure and resistance to fatty and acidic substances.

The broad international discussion about the avoidance of plastic waste and the long-term environmental impact caused by conventional plastics induced us to manufacture the spoon from a biodegradable and compostable material based on lactic acid obtained from vegetable starch.

With the use of bio-polymers we – and ultimately also the users – try to get closer to the goal of sustainable and ecologically harmless use of plastics in the household and to reduce the pollution of nature with pollutants. The PLA used by Balaenos® consists of approx. 70% vegetable raw materials.

At the end of its usability, it can be completely recycled, used for energy generation or returned to the ecological cycle by composting.

The properties and possible applications of these modern materials have now reached the level of conventional petroleum-based plastics.

They are also FDA compliant and approved for use with food.

The temperature resistance of the spoon is approx. 75° C due to the material used. Therefore, it should not be put in the dishwasher and, like other natural materials (e.g. knife handles and wooden kitchen utensils), cleaned by hand.

If possible, the spoon can be composted at home; mechanical crushing by grinding, sanding or shredding accelerates this biodegradation.

The Balaenos® spoon for leftovers is available in two sizes. The two versions of the spoon are based on the usual dimensions for cutlery.

In order not to disturb the dynamic and elegance of the shape, the spoon has a uniform colouring. However, it is possible to freely choose the respective colour, according to the colour variants offered by the material manufacturers, for an additional charge.

The design is protected by the German Patent Office and International (WIPO). Balaenos® is an internationally protected trademark and guarantees for the original product.
