Reusable Chopsticks + Case
Chopsticks-a-Go-Go! Forget water bottles. The humble waribashi--disposable wooden, literally, "split-apart" chopsticks—are the bane of landfills in Asia. In Japan, that's an environmental impact to the tune of 25 billion sets yearly—some 200 pairs per person. With 97% of throwaway chopsticks in Japan made in China, everyone's scrambling to find viable alternatives. In its latest five-year plan, China implemented a 5% tax on chopstick exports over concerns of deforestation. And designers are responding with their own solutions. Enter "My Hashi." These colorful wood chopsticks from Yuen’to. They come with their own handy carrying case and ready to go-go anywhere. Toss them in your bag, backpack or carry-on. Waste not, want not. BYOC! The world's forests will thank you.
