SPOKANE, Wash. — Zak Designs is looking to expand its environmental commitment by launching a new line of dinnerware, serveware and kitchen prep items, all made from recycled melamine. The Sprinkles collection uses the same patented process Zak used in its best-selling, upscale Confetti collection, allowing the company to offer the same environmentally friendly products to the mass market.
Zak’s Sprinkles line features a complete selection of dinnerware, serveware and kitchen prep products, from serving trays and appetizer plates to nested mixing bowls and egg trays. All of the items have a unique look featuring modern lines and stylish shapes and come in five distinctive colors to coordinate with all of Zak’s everyday tableware and drinkware lines, increasing the versatility of the line.
The patented recycled melamine is produced by adding formaldehyde to melamine to produce a melamine resin, a durable, flame-resistant plastic used in Formica, laminate flooring, dry erase boards and, of course, dinnerware.
Whether using Zak’s new products alone or mixing and matching with other Zak lines, the Sprinkles collection allows consumers to not only showcase their style, but also their priority to be environmentally conscious.
