Vote: Are Edible Utensils
the Next Big Thing?

By Tonka Dobreva 04.08.2018 interact

 

April is Earth Month, and the theme for 2018 is “Plastic Pollution.” Scientists have long warned us about the environmental and health dangers of plastics, and this Next Big Thing is on a mission to be part of the solution.

Imagine using a fork with your take-out salad or a spoon with your ice cream that, instead of trashing, you can … eat? A company called Bakeys has come up with a yummy alternative to disposable utensils. Their cutlery is made of a rice and wheat flour blend, using no preservatives or fats. The utensils are baked in high temperatures and come in different flavors — plain, sweet or savory. It’s a treat for you and for the environment.

So what do you think — are edible utensils the Next Big Thing? Vote and tell us your opinion in the comments section below. Or submit your video comments to nbt@channelone.com. We will feature the results of the poll and some of your comments on the show!

    I think edible utensils are the next big thing because it would make less waste, and save animals who would’ve died from eating the plastic utensils

    I think edible utensils are the next big thing because plastic takes a long time to break down and it’s hurting our environment. So if the utensils are made out of food they will break down a lot quicker.

    Yes, I think that edible utensils are the next big thing because it can save ocean creatures from getting killed all because of us.

    I think that edible utensils are The Next Big Thing because they are good for the environment and then they also might just be the best thing for us. Lets eat our forks!!!

    These are a win in any situation, because even if you don’t want to eat them, then they can decompose really fast

    no because it is a bad idea cause sometimes things just need to stay the way they are and just NO NEDD CHANGE!

    No because it’s a waste of resource that could be recycled right after plus it would add more and more tax and money spent
