JUNIOR DESIGN AWARDS 2020 GOLD WINNER: Best Eco Children’s Tableware Design


WHAT: A range of original and unique dining products designed by a couple who curated every curve and every shade based on their real-life experiences of feeding their 3 daughters. Ekobo, launched in 2003 – and are really the pioneers in eco and Bamboo designed tableware for kids.

WHY: Streets ahead of the rest with their knowledge and use of  Bamboo – Ekobo are always pushing forward to make thoughtful, premium products that parents can trust – and, that look good on the dining table too! Made with FSC-certified bamboo fibre, a food-safe resin binder and their signature eco-composite formula registered as BIOBU® , the range is non-toxic, reusable and all-terrain – from highchair to schoolyard, but versatile enough for holiday tables or camping trips too. Ekobo is both beautiful and safe, for today and more importantly, for tomorrow.

Great colours, stylish and eco friendly- something I want in my home!

At junior we're big fans of Ekobo, so it's great to see them win again - proving just how timeless these items are! Ekobo's commitment to eco design and development continues to impress and astound us. This company knows its stuff and we can see why they consider this brand their fourth baby - there is love in every design. Well done!

JUNIOR DESIGN AWARDS 2020 SILVER WINNER: Best Eco Children’s Tableware Design

WHO: Bobo&boo

WHAT: A range of natural, plant-based and melamine free tableware in unique colours for toddlers and children.

WHY: Bobo&boo dining sets are extra durable (more then bamboo), re-usable for many years and can be used in the microwave and dishwasher. Stackable, fun and available in sets or as individual pieces so you can build up your own collection, these products are also compostable and biodegradable when they do finally reach the end of their lifespan.

Nice bright colours!

JUNIOR DESIGN AWARDS 2020 BRONZE WINNER: Best Eco Children’s Tableware Design

WHO: We Might Be Tiny

WHAT: Bendie Straws are a highly-durable, reusable silicone straw offering an eco alternative to the dreaded plastic straws that pollute the world’s waterways and beaches. Available in a 5-pack or individually with straw case & cleaner – they can be popped in your baby bag or handbag and used wherever you are.

WHY: All kids seem to have an obsession with straws, so these non-toxic food-grade silicone Bendie Straws from We Might Be Tiny are the eco answer. The flexible and soft-to-touch design means they’re safer on teeth and little mouths than metal, glass or bamboo straws. These silicone straws are fantastic for the whole family to use at home or on the move (we love the individual ones that come with a key chain that can be attached to your bag). Uniquely designed with an embossed pattern featuring their signature bear, bunny and cat design and an angled tip that is perfect for slurping up that last bit of deliciousness from the bottom of the cup. Milkshake, anyone?

I love that an already environmentally friendly idea has been further adapted to appeal to children. These are a stroke of genius.
