… to bring you stylish and environmentally friendly bamboo utensils!
According to the Clean Air Council, enough paper and plastic utensils are thrown away every year to circle the equator 300 times. It is estimated that close to 40 billion individual plastic utensils—meaning 14 and 18 billion plastic spoons—are produced each year, and with such low rates of reuse and recycling, most of them end up in our landfills, beaches and oceans. They are likely to remain there for hundreds of thousands of years. This astounding figure gives businesses an easy opportunity to show their customers they authentically care about the environment by doing away with these unnecessary pollutants and replacing them with environmentally friendly utensils.

Let’s do our part… ONE STEP at a time to minimize the amount of single-use disposables that end up in the landfill every year! It is interesting to reflect on the concept of throwing something “away”… there is now “away”! There is only waste, pollution and overflowing landfills. Plastics take between 400-700 years to break down and never really go away. As they do begin to break down they turn into micro-plastics, much of which ends up in our water streams and oceans. Watch this short video “Open Your Eyes” narrated by Jeff Bridges to learn more about these issues.
