Get Your Food To-Go

You know how I like to use products that are eco-friendly and convenient. Well, over the holidays we came across a fun product by To-Go Ware. It’s a reusable bamboo utensil set that comes with a fork, spoon, knife and chopsticks. Fun, right? Even more fun is the tagline: Reduce Your Forkprint. The utensils are made of sustainable bamboo, which are stain-resistant, doesn’t absorb flavors (so you can eat spicy shrimp with them and then have chocolate cake without any shrimpy aftertaste) and it’s lightweight. 
The pouch is made from recycled plastic bottles, so less waste in landfills! It’s called RPET, which stands for Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate, or recycled polyester. All those plastic water bottles that people use and then throw away instead of recycling are going to go somewhere. Most will end up in landfills and eventually pollute the sea creatures in the Pacific, but many lucky ones are destined to become a new product, like this fancy little pouch to hold my utensils. It even has a caribiner clip to attach to your bag, backpack or anything else you’re walking around with.
To-Go Ware is fantastic for travel, because you always have something to use for street food, farmers’ market finds and more. Ever get something and a utensil isn’t included? Well, now you don’t have to worry about it. Throw a set in your desk drawer or your glove box. Don’t contribute to the amount of plastic ware that gets thrown out every day. Already, it’s enough to circle the earth 300 times  each year! Convenience has its consequences, but when you have this handy little set, you have convenience and you’re doing the earth a favor. Wonderful! You can also purchase on Amazon for free super saver shipping.
