Olive Wood Utensils
After investing in toxin-free, clay cookware I began thinking about the utensils I use within the precious natural surfaces of the cookware. I started searching for natural utensils. I found out that olive wood is a European treasured kitchen tool for its hardness, strength, anti-bacterial properties and its unique beauty. It is also sustainable because the olive tree eventually stops producing olives and the wood becomes knotted, gnarled and thick; this gnarling thickness is what creates the beautiful grained patterns.

-a study by University of Wisconsin Madison, found that 99.9% of bacteria dies off within three minutes on wooden boards but none die on plastic ones!
-They also found that when the boards were left unwashed overnight at room temperature, the bacterial counts increased on the plastic but none of the organisms could be recovered from the wooden boards the next morning.
