Put Down the Plastic, Pick Up the Steel

Put Down the Plastic, Pick Up the Steel

Did you know that only 9% of all the plastic waste generated in 2012 was recovered for recycling? However, approximately 90% of end-of-life stainless steel is collected and recycled into new products. An average stainless steel object is composed of about 60% recycled material. Stainless steel is one of the world’s most recycled materials - more than paper or glass. 

As parents, we all want our children to be healthy. But, as adults, it's important to recognize that a healthy planet is important for healthy kids. We only have one Earth and it's our job to protect it for the generations of kids ahead. Our children learn from us and are capable of understanding so much at even the youngest of ages! Set examples, have discussions and work together with your kids to be a team that champions sustainability efforts.

We know that using Ahimsa products at your dining table is just one of the many ways to decrease the plastic footprint on our planet. Click on the National Geographic KIDS VS PLASTIC certificate below for tips to reduce your plastic use. Your child can even pledge to be a planet protector and receive their very own Certificate of Heroism! Team Ahimsa earned ours by pledging to decrease our use of single use plastics. So, go on ... grab your superhero capes and join us. Cheers to a Happy, Healthy Planet!

To see more of the staggering statistics surrounding plastic pollution, read GREENPEACE's "Key Facts About Plastic Pollution." It's a great breakdown of all the terrifying facts regarding plastic and its devastating effects on Earth. It also lists many links to the reference data. UN News also has an alarming breakdown of just how much plastic is polluting our ocean waters. More microplastic particles in the sea than stars in the Milky Way. 500 times more! That's scary.

I’ve wanted to switch to stainless steel for sometime especially after the AAP warned parents to do away with plastic in the kitchen for kids’ health. We also are trying to live a greener lifestyle. When I first saw these I fell in love. My boys were so excited to get the blue iridescent! They are timeless because they work for my one yr old and I can see them lasting many, many years as they don’t look like they are meant for any specific age. Other stainless steel kids’ dinnerware doesn’t touch these. Love that they are dishwasher safe. The customer service is wonderful too for this company too! A great investment for our children!

Perfect gift!

I gifted this to a friend for her baby shower , and she absolutely loves it! I Love that the products are safe for our children and also the environment. Not to mention, so pretty! My new go-to gift!

My kids have outgrown their partitioned plates, I wish these were around 5 years ago! I want to order some sets anyway just for snacks!

Thank you for the kind review, Kristin! We are so thrilled you've chosen Ahimsa for your gifts!!! Although the USDA recommends a healthy variety of foods at any age (which our modular system promotes) we are hearing some requests for non-compartment plates. We are listening and have something up our sleeves for those who prefer non compartments! Please keep your feedback coming - we love hearing what customers want whether its new products or colors! Happy, healthy eating! Manasa
So fun!

Love these bowls! Great quality and they are the first bowls I reach for when making a snack for my son. And even myself! Highly recommend!


Our kiddos were so excited about their Valentine's day gifts❤ not only are they easy to clean, functional, and better for all, but my daughter says "they are so pretty"!!! We have always been super strict about what our kiddos eat, but not so much with what they are eating the healthy food on. We are thrilled with our purchase and can not wait to use the nesting spoon with our youngest. We will be purchasing many more in the future.


These are perfect and exactly as described! My kids are so excited to help get meals ready and to eat :)
