My daughter came home from college in June for a visit and we were cooking together. She loved my rice husk cutting boards!! As she was leaving I gave her one. I love being able to pass on Norwex products not only to my family but to many people!

Just watched a documentary on the great wall of china and they stated that the secret ingredient that made the wall so strong thru the centuries was a rice paste. So, it IS a great strengthener in building materials!

We only have our Norwex cutting boards so far, but I’d be excited to try other products that are made out of such a great renewable resource!

The new Large Norwex Cutting Board is the best cutting board I have ever owned. Anything I can put in dishwasher and not destroy the beautiful look of it – well I’m all about that. Plus it’s sustainable!!! Win Win! Thanks Norwex! #feelgoodproductsinmyhome
