Edible Cutlery By Hyderabad Startup

Edible Cutlery

A startup in India has invented edible spoons to help cut plastic out of our diets. The cutlery comes in three flavors: Sweet, Savoury and plain. They're made from rice millet, and wheat, and have a shelf life of three years. Bakeys Foods now sells 1.5 million of them annually. You can buy a pack of 100 for just $4 including shipping. The company plans to extend to edible forks and chopsticks next. Humans throw away about 110 million tons of plastic each year and we use roughly 640 billion plastic utensils.
