Eco-friendly Chopsticks


Bloggers care about the environment… and therefore I’ve got these eco-friendly chopsticks. They are supposed to replace the disposable chopsticks so common these days.

The two “sections” of the chopsticks can be detached and kept in a compact, portable casing as shown in the picture. Just remember one thing: avoid washing them in a dish washer, or they are not so green anymore.

Interested? Enquire in Tzu Chi.

    I think it is plastic, but you don't throw them away after each meal.

    Perhaps you should see for yourself being making decision...

  4. Hmm... so after using the chopsticks outside on a bowl of oily laksa, and with no soap and water to wash it clean, are we going to wipe it clean with a tissue?

    A novel idea nonetheless, bro.

  5. If this is made of plastic, how can they claim that's its eco-friendly?
    Plastic is a by-product of petroleum....and mining for oil is indeed environmentally damaging, although oil companies will deny this.
    Plastic is non-degradable. When you wash and re-use it, the detergent used will harm the environment. Aiyah..this argument is endless lah. Use hand better! LOL

  12. Oh? The imagination strays to 10 family members at the dining table with a box of chopsticks each by his/her side, very much like children's pencil boxes. LOL!!

    Ah... the evolution of the meal culture.

  13. Yes, travel along pencil box wherever u r.haha....

    But is true, i really got one 'pencil box' containing strainless steel fork + spoon + chopstick. I use them whenever having my lunch.

    There are many designs of eco-chopsticks. Not all of them are like pencil box.

    Eh... I haven't thought of carrying fork and spoon. I think most food courts still provide reusable forks and spoons.

  21. eh... 宝茹
    Do you mean... Filipinos have a lot of these? I thought they normally eat with spoon and fork?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yes, we normally use spoons and forks; but we have Chinese influences here as well. :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Why not just use stainless steel spoon and fork?

  24. Hmm... is time to get myself a Xmas present a bit earlier. ^^

    It is more convenient to use chopsticks when eating noodle.

  26. I like to use this chopstick especially when I'm eating noodle in the car before reach my working place!
    Easy to bring, easy to keep!
    When I showed it to my juniors, they will say "wow"! Just to tell them another way to help the environment.

    You eat noodle in the car!?? I advise you to slow down. Eat your breakfast at proper place.
