10. Victorinox

10. Victorinox

Victorinox cutting boards are a model of sustainability and ecology. First of all, they are made of a material derived from sustainable forest management, a kraft paper composite (Richlite) with an FSC label. Then the production process itself is designed to maximise recycling and energy recovery at each stage. The ultimate proof that these boards are made for long-term use: they have a lifetime guarantee against manufacturing and material defects, they preserve the cutting power of the knives (and thus their longevity), and they are also multifunctional: they can be used as cutting boards, serving trays, and even coasters.
