Did You Know?
The U.S. throws away enough plastic utensils each year to circle the equator 300 times!
Instead of purchasing new plastic utensils for picnics or bag lunches, consider using stainless steel or bamboo reusables. For getting rid of the ones you already have, reuse them until they break. While recycling is technically possible, there are few jurisdictions offering it because it is not yet economically viable.
