Imagine this… over 120 BILLION pieces of plastic cutlery are used and discarded in India every year, 120 BILLION!!!!!!! Without an alternative except endless washing of silverware in potentially unsanitary conditions until recently when an amazing mind came up with this idea, edible cutlery. Made predominantly from millet and spices (or sugar for the sweet variety), these spoons are not only saving the planet but are nutritious and tasty.
I sincerely hope they make it out to this country and the USA where we discard so much single use plastic ware because of our addiction to take away food. Plastic doesn’t biodegrade (t photo degrades which means it just breaks up into smaller and smaller pieces of plastic) and leaches toxic chemicals into landfill and ground water and inevitably our oceans. This is a fabulous alternative and a healthy treat.
