New Eco-Friendly Cutlery?

To you who do have “Save the Planet” or “Go Green” bumper stickers, I’ve already staked-out I’m a Green Guy too, and yet, when I find a company championing a cause (or stirring it up)¬†and then offering a solution it benefits from, it irks me. (I’m not talking about the ol’ capitalistic axiom of- find a need and fill it- here either).

You may or may not be aware plastics are under attack. I guess they don’t biodegrade very well, or something. Since we are about all forms of cutlery here at CNJ, my radar picked this up.

Bamboo Cutlery

Bamboo Cutlery (or Slips) is designed as an Eco-friendly replacement to those eternal plastic forks, knives and spoons, but before you assume this product is simply Chop Sticks- guess again.

BUT WAIT!

Before Al Gore gives all the credit to this Bamboo Cutlery maker for saving our planet, did you know¬†MASAYOSHI¬†TAKETJCHI was granted a patent already for Bamboo Cutlery? Yep, it’s true- way back on June 27, 1916.

His patent application even adds- “The object of my invention is to produce articles of this kind (knives and forks) which will be attractive, cheap in costs and which may be thrown away after use…”
