EcoTensils Rethinks the Plastic Spoon with a Low-Impact Design
January 01, 2012
Do you really need a utensil that you use for a couple of bites that when thrown away lasts forever, pollutes our oceans and fills up landfills? I can‚Äôt imagine anyone answering yes to that question. But the need for disposable plastics and utensils just does not seem to go away!
EcoTensil founder Peggy Cross, echoes this sentiment,
‚ÄúOne uses a plastic tasting spoon for a few seconds. It then continues to exist on this planet for hundreds or thousands of years. Considering we use millions of these things, in addition to other types of single-use plastic, it‚Äôs not sustainable or responsible. How will the next generations, namely, our children, look back at us and what we‚Äôve left for them?‚Äù
Peggy set out to make a change by forging ahead with innovative solutions to end one-taste plastic waste. She founded EcoTensil, Inc., manufacturer of ultra-green, single-use, silky-smooth, paperboard spoons that are biodegradable and recyclable.
EcoTensil’s flagship product is an award-winning compostable paper taster that uses one-fifth the space of other tasters and is widely used for sampling at major retailers, including Target, Costco and Whole Foods.
EcoTensil has reinvented disposable cutlery to help companies achieve zero waste goals. In one fun fold, our pleasingly smooth FSC paperboard utensils transform into the most sustainable, efficient, brandable utensils available.
