Have you ever wondered if there was an alternative to plastic utensils? Do you ever just feel like eating your utensils? I have just the right idea for you! A man in India has created edible utensils. That’s right, you don’t need to add to the waste any more, you can just eat it.

A man in India has created edible cutlery. It is said that 120 billion pieces of disposable utensils are thrown out every year. That is a whole lot of plastic, which equals to chemicals. This design was created in 2011 and is said to be delicious. The utensils are a mixture of millets, rice, and wheat. The product contains no preservatives, highly nutritious and have a shelf life of three years. If you don’t want to eat it, you can throw it out and it will decompose within 4-5 days.

Not only is the creation brilliant and sustainable but it tastes good too! There are all different flavors such as, sugar, ginger-cinnamon, ginger-garlic, celery, black pepper, cumin, mint-ginger and carrot. Depending on your meal you can pick between the variety of flavors. Step out of the box and try to get your hands on this eco-friendly invention!
