To go beyond eco-friendly travel and truly help the environment, invest in your own set of bamboo cutlery so you don’t have to use the plastic utensils that far too many companies still give out.
Filmmaker and explorer Céline S Cousteau told itmustbeNOW Magazine that she uses Chicago based To-Go Ware – they offer an attractive range of bamboo flatware in colourful holders made out of RPET (recycled PET plastic) so that plastic bottles have a ‘second shot at a useful life’. The fork, knife, spoon and chopsticks are heat and stain resistant, light but strong, and hand finished with a natural, food-safe wood oil, while a carabiner on the back make them easy to carry. They make kids sets and tiffin-style food boxes too. From $12.95 for a Utensil Set. Buy online worldwide at To-goware.com.
