Bamboo is the fastest growing wooden grass on earth. This renewable material is used to manufacture billions of chopsticks worldwide.
Vancouverites love Asian Cuisine. Currently, there are more than 2000 restaurants using chopsticks, however, most of these restaurants use disposable chopsticks with a lifetime of less than 1 hour.
Vancouver alone sends over 100,000 disposable chopsticks to the landfill every day. By recycling chopsticks with ChopValue, your restaurants can save money in garbage collection costs while improving your environmental image. Currently, the chopstick lifecycle ends in the garbage and are mostly non-recycled. Be part of the innovative zero waste society, help reverse the logistics of where current chopsticks end up and help us generate a new second life cycle.
Bamboo chopsticks can be processed into newly developed materials providing opportunities for small and medium-sized manufacturers to get involved. These new materials benefit from bamboo’s attractive appearance and physical properties.
