Do you really need a utensil that you use for a couple of bites that when thrown aways lasts forever, pollutes our oceans and fills up landfills? I can’t imagine anyone answering yes to that question. But the need for disposable plastics and utensils just does not seem to go away!
EcoTensil founder Peggy Cross, echoes this sentiment,
“One uses a plastic tasting spoon for a few seconds. It then continues to exist on this planet for hundreds or thousands of years. Considering we use millions of these things, in addition to other types of single-use plastic, it’s not sustainable or responsible. How will the next generations, namely, our children, look back at us and what we’ve left for them?”
