Each year, the demand for about 57 billion disposable pairs of chopsticks in China, leads to the equivalent of 3.8 million trees being chopped.
By carrying your own reusable chopsticks, you are preventing disposable chopsticks being trashed every single time. You also spark a conversation about the hazards of a use-once-and-throw-away lifestyle that has permeated us.
