Laboratory tested for hygiene, camphor laurel timber was found to contain natural anti-microbial chemicals (also known to occur naturally in edible products) making it the most effective food preparation surface with regard to reducing microbial growth.
Wild Wares chopping boards have been extensively tested by a NATA approved laboratory for the four most common food viruses (E coli, Salmonella, Staph and Listeria). These tests showed that bacteria were unable to survive - our boards used domestically and commercially for the past 7-10 years showed ZERO bacteria growth.
GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT:
The camphor laurel species is a declared environmental weed and has an ecologically harmful effect on natural ecosystems within the Australian landscape.
There are Government programmes in place that encourage the removal of these invasive trees from sensitive environments and their utilisation by enterprises to support local economies.
Our boards support the local Australian economy and save Australian ecosystems.
But they do more than that . . .
GOOD FOR WILDLIFE:
We plant trees for our koalas who have not only had their homes destroyed by Australia's recent bushfires, but have suffered for years due to drought and excessive tree-clearing for human houses. Sadly, they are on track to be extinct as early as 2050 - this is not a future we want to see for our koalas so we are determined to help save them by replanting the trees they need to survive and thrive.
Having run a wildlife charity for years, raising over $400,000 for wildlife all around the world, we will continue to raise much needed funds for wildlife conservation by donating 20% of our profits through our charity Animal Works International.
