The Natural History Museum has summer barbecues sorted with its Bamboo Kitchen Collection

Pandas, picnic fans and environmentalists will love the Natural History Museum’s colourful new kitchenware range – made from biodegradable bamboo

Barbecue weather is just around the corner – perfect timing for the Natural History Museum’s cheerful new Bamboo Kitchen Collection.

All available in three juicy citrus brights, the pieces not only look good enough to eat, you almost could – the seven-strong range is made from bamboo and corn powder.

With everything from salad bowls (£15) and servers (£8) to cups (£5), spoons (£10 for six) and even coasters (£8 for four), the eco-friendly range is perfect for an alfresco summer dinner.

It’s all biodegradable (destined for the compost, not landfill) and practical too – stain-resistant, and everything can be popped in the dishwasher after that sunshine-drenched picnic or barbecue.

The Bamboo Kitchen Collection is available from the Natural History Museum shop.
