Have you heard about edible cutlery? Yes! I am not kidding!! One delicious way to reduce the plastic waste is eating the spoon or fork after meals! So, no more cleaning processes, no more decomposing, now more wastes. Our stomach will replace the recycling. The founder of this brilliant product is by Narayana Peesapaty from India.
The cutlery is made of sorghum, rice and wheat flour, it’s vegan, has no preservatives and no trans-far and dairy at all. It can be stored in a dry and cool place up to three years. Sorghum has similar nutrients to raw oats. And they are drought- and heat- tolerant, so it is easy to grow. Is it soaked or melting for drinking hot soup? The utensils can stand for about 15-20 mints with disintegrating, which is enough for regular uses. Nowadays, they provide a few flavors of the spoon, such as sugar and ginger-cinnamon, ginger-garlic, celery, black pepper, cumin, mint-ginger and carrot-beetroot. Meanwhile, if people are not consuming it, it will decompose within 5-6 days. Why not corns? Based on the study, the sorghum uses the least engerm water, solid and produces least CO2 by comparing to the Plastic and Corn. It is about 1 percent of what is used for plastic. It’s a really efficiently environmental innovation.
Important, it is not super expensive. And as what the founder says, the price won’t be a problem once they start to make a huge amount of volume. It will get cheaper and cheaper. Why shouldn’t we go for a try? “it’s tasty, fun, nutritious, and environmental friendly.”
