Eat Your Disposable Spoon Instead of Tossing It In the Trash
This edible utensil comes in flavors ranging from mint-ginger to carrot-beetroot
Billions of plastic knives, forks and spoons are used once and just as quickly thrown away in the U.S. each year, according to India-based company Bakeys. But if consumers could eat their cutlery instead of tossing it in the garbage, the company’s founder thought, a “cutlery revolution” might be born.
Bakeys’ goal is to replace the disposable utensils used by fast food companies and consumers with an edible, biodegradable alternative. The company’s spoons—its first offering on Kickstarter —are made of rice, wheat and sorghum flours, and are able to naturally degrade outdoors in 10 days.
