Shoutout to our friends at @packagefreeshop for inspiring change!
Plastic forks, spoons, and knives may seem convenient, but they're wreaking havoc on our ecosystems and oceans.
It is estimated that over 40 billion individual plastic utensils are produced each year - and that's just in the USA. But how do these sneaky sporks make their way into our trash?
Consider this: If you workplace offers you free food, what type of cutlery do they lay out? Enter any fast food establishment - what adorns the walls next to the soda machines and napkins? 🍟In 2015, Americans placed nearly 2 BILLION delivery orders. Even if only half of those orders came with a disposable utensil, that's 1 billion right there!!🤢 Reusable cutlery is a great way to combat this incredibly toxic and wasteful habit. Yes, at first it may take a little bit of planning to bring your own silverware and ask your delivery service for "no forks or knives". But, before you know it, it will be second nature!🍴
