Concerned about microplastics? Make the switch to glass chopping boards

In recent years, it's been hard to ignore the growing concern about the presence of microplastics in our food and environment. If you're looking reduce your exposure, switching to glass chopping boards can help, and they look beautiful too.  

Hygienic and Non-Porous

Unlike plastic and wood, glass is a non-porous material, meaning it doesn't absorb liquids and harbour bacteria. This makes glass chopping boards easier to clean and sanitise, reducing the risk of cross-contamination in the kitchen, and you can simply wipe them down.

No Microplastic Shedding

Plastic chopping boards can degrade over time, especially when subjected to knife cuts, releasing tiny plastic particles into your food. Glass chopping boards, on the other hand, don't shed microplastics. This ensures that no plastic fragments end up in your meals, contributing to a healthier kitchen environment.

Durable and Long-Lasting

High-quality toughened glass chopping boards are incredibly durable and resistant to scratches and cuts. This longevity means they don't need to be replaced as frequently as their plastic counterparts, making them a more sustainable choice in the long run. With proper care, a glass chopping board can serve you for many years.


Choosing glass over plastic also benefits the environment. Glass is fully recyclable, and many glass chopping boards are made from recycled materials. By opting for glass, you help reduce plastic waste and its harmful impact on marine life and ecosystems.
