Arizona-Shaped Cutting Boards Bring State Love to Your Kitchen

The laser-cut state love fad isn't going anywhere quick. We've seen Arizona-shaped cookie cutters at ABC Cake Decorating Supplies, but now you can get your chop on Grand Canyon State-style, thanks to Epicurean. Whether you love the trend or are completely fed up with it, these home state pride kitsch-en supplies definitely are going to raise some brows because of what they're made of.

Epicurean's cutting boards are made with "excess cut-off skate park" materials. Though we're not entirely sure if we want to be prepping food on that surface, the U.S.-made boards are at least finding creative ways to use materials that likely would be thrown away otherwise.

Aside from being eco-friendly, the dishwasher-safe cutting boards are National Sanitation Foundation approved, so you probably don't have to worry about it being made out of whatever skate parks are made out of. The $24.99 Arizona board, along with 48 other states (sorry, Hawaii), is 12 inches by 12 inches and can be bought on the Epicurean website.
