We all know that what we put on our plate affects the environment. But thanks to Bakeys, an innovative company in India, what you eat your food WITH can help the environment just as much! Introducing the future of cutlery: edible forks, spoons, and knives.

The cutlery is made with only four ingredients: rice, wheat, millet, and water. That’s it! No coloring or preservatives, either. With plain, sweet, and spicy options, this cutlery can be used for just about anything – from your morning tea to evening dinner. It won’t melt in hot beverages and will last until the end of your meal! If you want, you can eat it as a snack.

Amazingly, it’s environmentally safe AND enriched with nutritious ingredients! Aside from being incredibly fun, amusing, and tasty, edible cutlery could be a game-changer in taking on the plastic industry. According to this Facebook video, 120 billion pieces of disposable plastic cutlery are discarded in India every year. Most plastic cutlery cannot be recycled, causing it to end up in a landfill and, more likely than not, in the ocean. Globally, 8.8 million tons of plastic end up in our oceans every year. Innovations like this cutlery are crucial to reducing our dependence on plastic – and if you can eat it too, then hey – that’s not too shabby either!

As the leading organization at the forefront of the conscious consumerism movement, One Green Planet believes that reducing everyday plastics from our lives is not about giving up anything or sacrificing convenience, but rather learning to reap the maximum benefit from the items you use every day while having the minimum impact.

If you’re interested in taking a bite, you can order your own set here! And if you’d like to learn more ways you can eliminate plastic from your daily life, join One Green Planet’s #CrushPlastic campaign!

Some are concerned with how much this costs. If your child were dying of a terminal illness, would any price be too much to save your loved one's life? Somebody developed penicillin and made a lot of loot on the deal. Are we still grateful we have penicillin? It the next generation, the plastic emanating from this planet will proceed to kill oceans, by killing sealife and birds. It will kill coral reefs and you know what? It isn't just animals. It is directly impacting us right now, and the seafood we eat has ingested plastic already, and we are consuming it, with all it's toxins. So...disposable plastic? When a viable biodegradable alternative is available. disposable plastic should be taxed 1000%.
