I bought these bamboo utensils from pataBee (not an affiliate link; click away!) because I bought their beeswax wraps and was offered a coupon for the utensils. I had been carrying around a set of my own silverware – I hate the idea that going zero waste means you have to buy all-natural stuff, glass jars, etc. You can easily help the environment by using what you already have – especially using it all up instead of throwing out what you have to buy organic new versions!
These come in a canvas carrying pouch that can clip onto your bag or strap, but it tucks away in my purse just fine.
I use the straws a lot – it comes with three, plus a cleaning brush! I use the utensils pretty often at work, when I’m too lazy to go get “real” silverware out of the kitchen!
I’ve had them for six months or so, and I love them. I get asked about the straws fairly often if I use them in restaurants, and I always love getting a chance to explain what they are and how they’re made, even if it might not make the person change in the long run – at least they’re listening!
Do you, or would you, carry your own utensils?
