Environmentally conscious sampling
- FDA compliant spoons are safe for food, drug and cosmetic contact
- Green alternative to petroleum-based sampling tools
These earth-friendly sampling spoons are durably constructed with PLA (polylactic acid) resin. PLA is a 100% plant-based material which contributes less greenhouse gasses from source to resin than its petroleum-based counterparts. Using annually renewable resources with little environmental impact, these spoons offer a low carbon footprint, are biodegradable, and can be disposed of through industrial composting, incineration, land fill or recycling. They are comparable in strength and durability to polystyrene, polypropylene and other plastic resin sampling tools. Nonsterile.
Wide-Handle Spoons are perfect for retrieving small, specific volume samples of powders or liquids. Wide handles let you grip firmly and provide just enough stiffness to easily sample packed powders and other firm materials. The unique flat bottom also lets you use these spoons as weighing boats to save time and assure accuracy.
