Eat your spoon

Bakey’s edible cutlery
29 July 2016

Bakey’s have come up with an edible alternative to the 120 billion pieces of disposable plastic knives, forks and spoons discarded in India every year. Environmentally safe, they have created plain, sweet and savoury spoons from millet, rice and wheat. If not eaten, they disintegrate in less than five days.

Founder Narayana Peesapat created the nutritious spoons to prove that environmental safeguarding and social responsibility can go hand in hand with a sound business process: “Change is inevitable,” he says. “Before this change can overtake and overwhelm us, we should be the instruments of change”.

Watch Peesapat explain how he plans to make his edible spoons as cheap as plastic ones.

You can order the spoons in batches of 100 here.
