Thanks to the rightful battle against plastic in our oceans this simple plastic cutlery has been labelled as “evil”. Something inoqueous as flimsy flatware made of melted down dinosours has become the enemy.
But even better is when that spoon becomes trash and people discard left to others to deal with. It’s not my problem they say. Let’s be very clear about something, people who litter are evil.
There’s a quote from comedianne Eddie Izzard — “They say that ‘Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.’ Well I think the gun helps.”.
People are killing the planet. Plastic cutlery is helping.

It is not often you come across an article that is chock full of tips and trivia about flatware. It’s always nice to see that someone out there shares your passion for something as simple and yet important as cutlery.
Joe Lutrario at Big Hospitality has written a great piece that is the A to Z about using that fork, spoon or knife.
“Thinking of forking out for a new set of cutlery or updating your selection? Look no further than this handy guide to eating irons.”

I dedicate this post to my wife who seems to suffer from this problem. Well actually I suffer from the problem and she’s the cause. When you put knives in the dishwasher, according Richard Herring, “Knives go down, for fork’s sake”. At the Metro UK Richard has a great article about the protagonist in his “novel” that dies by tripping over in the kitchen and landing on a large kitchen knife that is in the cutlery section of the dishwasher, sticking point upwards. (It’s not true but still scary). Cutlery can kill it seems. Fatal flatware if you will.
