It’s not uncommon for a china set of dinnerware to be passed down generation by generation in a family, so why do we treat kids’ dinnerware like a disposable addition to our cabinets?
That was the problem married couple Adam and Ai Su Bonnier wanted to tackle when they created Miniware, a collection of modernly designed, monochromatic, eco-friendly children’s dinnerware. Miniware is designed in-house, made from sustainable plant-based materials, and dishwasher safe—and it’s meant to last for years.
A set will grow with your baby, thanks to features such as detachable suction cups that allow you to attach bowls and plates to a tray table, or not. And once you’re done, the sets (made from materials such as bamboo, starch, and food-grade silicone) are designed to be compostable.
Miniware isn’t just a brand that has slapped the word ‘eco-friendly’ onto their product. The founder, Ai Bonnier, spent at least a year searching for certified factories, reading the most updated thesis of the production techniques, and visiting the production site to make sure all the processes were both eco-friendly and non-toxic.
