Together they have created the Pebble which is a bring-your-own cutlery (BYOC) set made from recycled CDs.
The kit comprises of a knife, a fork, a spoon, a straw and a set of chopsticks that fold away inside a case that can be easily carried.
To reduce the risk of transmission, many businesses have temporarily stopped using single-use plastic cutlery, which has seen a surge in popularity during the pandemic.
“The wasted CDs are first sorted and cleaned which means separating and purifying the feedstock, removing and recycling where possible contaminants such as cases and foreign waste material” Pentatonic cofounder Jamie Hall.
Here at the Cutlery Review we had been promoting what we call the Everyday Carry Cutlery or ECC. But our friends over at Treehugger.com are suggesting Bring Your Own Cutlery or BYOC. Either way it’s a great idea as what’s called “Normal” has changed all around us.
Bringing in your own cutlery reduces waste, helps the environment and on top of all that, you know where it’s been. You handle the cleaning, handling and sterilizing. Any extra little extra thing we can control in these changing times helps.
So we have embraced the term Bring Your Own Cutlery and will do our best to source and promote flatware that we feel can help.
These would make great stocking stuffers for Christmas. They are multi-taskers as well. You can use them for storing your Everyday Carry Cutlery, reusuable straws, chopsticks, pens and pencils, your glasses and the list goes on and on.
With a rather festive Christmas design these bags are 11.7 inches long and 4 inches wide. They are hand washable and made of high quality cotton and linen. This is a pack of ten bags.
