  1. Don’t know if I’d buy a 1000 dollar table. Every stick is oriented in the same direction which makes it susceptible to breaking easily at any of the lines between the sticks.
    happens with bamboo cutting boards alot because they’re also made out of smaller sections. a way to prevent this is using 3 layers with the middle layer rotated by 90 degrees sideways.

  2. I just don’t understand how single use utensils are still a thing, they make no economic sense. Even if a reusable fork is a thousand times as expensive as an expendable one, so what, it’ll still be cheaper within the span of a couple years of use

  3. It’s very bad
    Don’t use chop stick
    And instead use spoon 🥄 and 🍴
    They will reduce the cutting of trees 🤬🤬🤬

  4. I wonder what happens to all the plastic bags used to transport the chopsticks. A really fun idea that I think needs a little bit of work.

  5. Well at least that’s a use for them, I hate these things (disposable chopsticks) unfinished wood touching my teeth or mouth is unbearable, like chewing tin foil or nails in a black board. 🤢

  6. Get better at sorting it. Ship it to Africa build houses out of it to reduce the mountains of waste… and stop making so much 😆

  7. Brilliant! Fantastic use of pre-garbage items. We have so many resources that end up in the garbage, forgotten, and all the while we destroy environments or expend more resources to make MORE garbage…all the while there’s a fortune in there.
