"Nature Miffy" was established in Taipei in 2011 and is operated by Miffy and her husband Chen Ren-Quan. One day she read the book "Boys Adrift", it was pointing out that modern boys are suffering from endocrine balance caused by environmental estrogen. Miffy's son has been so hyperactive and she recalled that she often ate candies that are wrapped with colored plastic paper when she was a child. Miffy though that the environmental estrogen inside the plastic paper has affected his son. In fact, before the invention of plastic utensils, our ancestors used natural materials to make utensils, and they can still live well without the presence of plastic materials, wasn’t they?
After the two of them got to know natural utensils, they were determined to promote them. Besides selling natural utensils, they also held workshops and talks to share concepts with more people. Miffy said that working on natural utensils is time consuming and only comes with low profits. Thus, only the elderlies are willing to do it. Miffy wants to promote the elderly craftmanship through "Nature Miffy" so that they will still have income after retirement. At the same time, Miffy wants to elicit the interest of the young generations towards the old craftmanship and the concept of low (no) plastic life. She hopes the environment hormone and chronic poisoning can be gradually reduced with the decreasing use of plastics.
"Nature Miffy" mostly uses bamboo to make natural utensils. Bamboo grows fast. Therefore, the Ecology will not be affected even if a large number of harvests. When you drink with a bamboo straw, there will be a light bamboo fragrance and you can feel the vitality of the bamboo. They also like to find suitable seasonal plants for plant dyeing.
