Wooden! We encourage people to try to reduce their use of plastic products, for both health and environmental reasons. Plastics take decades to degrade and often contain plasticisers, such as Bisphenol-A (BPA)...

Most people are familiar with the need to reduce Bisphenol-A (BPA) exposure for health, but there is novel research happening on the impact of other plasticisers (i.e., plastics) on health. The experts at Eat Sustainably are keeping a close eye on the evidence in this space as there are many other commonly used bisphenols (A, S and F), phalates and microplastics.


If cared for and washed by hand, wooden chopping boards can last years and years. If you can find and afford wooden chopping boards made with wood from native trees is preferred as it's more environmentally friendly and can support Australian businesses.
