Awesome Invention Allows You To Bake Edible Spoons To Reduce Plastic Waste
Because it’s so easy to use single-waste plastic, such as cutlery, plates, and cups, one rarely thinks twice before tossing the materials into the trash. It’s because of this, however, that the world is becoming increasingly burdened by plastic pollution.
According to statistics compiled by The World Counts, humanity’s wasteful habits are already wreaking havoc on the environment. In the North Pacific Ocean, for example, there is 6x more plastic debris than plankton. Additionally, 90% of the trash that floats in the oceans is made up of plastic (equating to 46,000 pieces per square mile). As materials composed of plastic slowly break down, they release toxins into the environment. The trash is also oftentimes ingested by animals and in some cases, traps innocent creatures such as turtles and fish.
It’s because of this that every individual needs to do their part for future generations and wildlife by ending their reliance on plastic materials. Fortunately, there is an ingenious and delicious solution for peoples’ dependence on disposable cutlery: edible spoons!
The concept, which was initially introduced in India, led to the invention of a tool called the Edible Spoon Maker. According to the company’s website, the Edible Spoon Maker allows one to eat their food with an eco-friendly utensil and eat it, too! Designed by Anatoliy Omelchenko, cooks can use the Edible Spoon Maker to bake crispy and evenly browned spoons from a variety of homemade (or store-bought) dough. The best part? The process to create a spoon takes only three to four minutes and produces a set of four!
