In order to make a dent in the amount of plastic waste generated every day, you need to rethink your habits. In the UK, an estimated 8.5 billion plastic utensils are thrown away every year. These utensils, which include knives, forks, and spoons, are made from non-biodegradable materials like polystyrene and PVC, and take hundreds of years to decompose.
This creates a lot of unnecessary waste, and it's not just bad for the environment - it's also bad for our health. Plastic utensils can contain harmful chemicals like BPA (bisphenol A), which are known to cause cancer and other health problems.
In addition to the problems with disposable plastic cutlery, there are also concerns about the amount of non-reusable tableware products that are being produced and used every day. These items, which include plates, bowls, and cups, are often made from materials like plastic and styrofoam, which are not biodegradable.
This means that they will never break down or decompose, and will instead sit in landfills for hundreds of years. Not only is this bad for the environment, but it's also bad for marine life. Sea turtles and other marine animals often mistake these items for food, and when they do they can die from internal blockages or choking.
According to Condor Ferries, a recent publication on Marine and Ocean pollution, statistics, and facts, 2020-2021: "100 million marine animals die each year from plastic waste alone. 100,000 marine animals die from getting entangled in plastic yearly – this is just the creatures we find! 1 in 3 marine mammal species get found entangled in the litter, 12-14,000 tons of plastic are ingested by North Pacific fish yearly."
By making the switch to edible cutlery, you can help reduce this number and protect our oceans and marine life. Edible cutlery is a great alternative to plastic, and also comes with many benefits of regular utensils.
The production of plastics contributes to around 3.8% of the world's greenhouse gas emissions throughout their lifecycle. These emissions contribute to climate change and global warming, which are already having a devastating effect on our planet.
It's not just plastic waste and greenhouse gas emissions that we need to worry about, but also the environmental problems caused by the extraction and manufacturing processes. Plastic extraction and manufacturing alone use large amounts of energy, water, chemicals, and other non-renewable resources.
Stroodles' edible cutlery is 100% biodegradable and produced using less energy than regular plastic utensils, which makes them more sustainable. By ditching disposable plastic utensils, you can help reduce greenhouse emissions, water pollution, and littering in our oceans.
Edible cutlery is completely safe to eat. This makes them a much healthier alternative to plastic utensils, which usually contain harmful chemicals like BPA (bisphenol A). Some plastics can leach these chemicals into our food, which could have serious health implications.
By making the switch to edible cutlery you can reduce your exposure to these chemicals. Studies have shown that many people regularly ingest high levels of BPA and other harmful chemicals from their food containers and tableware.
Stroodles cutlery is made from all-natural ingredients like Wheat flour, millet flour, oat flour, rice flour, barley flour, chickpea flour. This means they are 100% safe to eat and come with many nutritional benefits.
Edible cutlery comes in many different shapes and sizes, which makes them functional as well as sustainable. They come in regular silverware shaped like spoons, straws, forks and knives, and more.
Many of these cutlery products look very similar to their plastic counterparts, which makes them a great substitute for when you're out and about.
They are completely functional- they can be used to eat soups, salads, pancakes, and more without breaking or melting. They are also suitable for both hot and cold foods.
Plastic utensils are brittle and often break into shards after only a few uses. If you ever find yourself eating with plastic cutlery you'll know that the utensil often breaks in half, and it's very difficult to eat your meal.
Edible cutlery is strong and durable and can be used multiple times. Stroodles utensils are made from a variety of different ingredients that are both strong and flexible. They are just as functional as regular plastic utensils, but much more durable. But make sure not to put too much pressure on these utensils while using them - if pushed down with a large amount of force, they may crack.
Stroodles' edible cutlery is made from all-natural ingredients, some of which are flavored. For example, the edible spoons can complement both sweet and savory catering events.
They can be used as part of a buffet spread or as a dessert spoon for ice cream and other sweet treats. The spoons come with choc flavor (gluten-free), oat flavor, and in Classic, Cocoa, Pepper, and Masala flavors, allowing you to choose the right flavor for your occasion. Plus, they are also vegan-friendly.
