A long while back I wrote about a cool set of stainless steel non-toxic popsicle molds. I loved the look of this set, but was concerned about the fact that it came with non-reusable sticks. It may seem like a little issue, but in the long run, a bazillion sticks in the landfill doesn’t sound like much fun does it?
There’s very little information on the website about these sticks, but Carolyn from ONYX told me the following:
The sticks are made from a single sheet of bamboo, no glue. The finish is a natural, vegan sealant. They should be hand washed, just like wooden utensils. I’m not how long they will last. I’ve been using mine for about 6 months now, and they are still fine. My children do not chew the sticks though, and some of them are a bit stained – blackberry ice pops.
Six months worth of use sounds very good. Much better than single use for sure. Affordable too. You can get a set of 12 Bamboo Ice Pop Sticks at ONYX for just $3.00.
