Most of us think nothing of using a plastic spoon or fork when we buy take-out or have lunch at our desks. This is why over 40 billion plastic utensils are used every year in just the United States. Most are used once and end up in landfills.
Consider this: if just 5 people stop using 2 plastic utensils a day at work, they would save 2,500 plastic utensils per year!
Will you be 1 of those 5 people who pledge to “wash the spoon”? Post in comments and send to 4 friends if you are!
“It’s pretty amazing that our society has reached a point where the effort necessary to extract oil from the ground, ship it to a refinery, turn it into plastic, shape it appropriately, truck it to a store, buy it and bring it home is considered to be less effort than what it takes to just wash the spoon when you’re done with it.”
