Don’t Throw Your Eating Utensils Away…Eat Them!
World Centric

Did you know that your plastic fork, spoon, or knife may not even be plastic? Recently my son and I were watching a science documentary about the many uses of wheat.  Believe it or not, wheat straw is being used to make all sorts of things such as plates, entry doors, cups, and yes, your eating utensils that you thought were PLASTIC!    

As a leading supplier of eco-friendly products, World Centric manufactures disposable eating utensils from wheat straw fiber and other renewable plants.  In 90 to 180 days your knife, fork and spoon will again become part of the soil.   How cool is that?
