1000 Flowers for the Planet - #554 Always Use Real Cutlery
Just as Flower #553 Always Use Real Crockery, we should try to always use real cutlery for the same reasons. Wouldn’t it be much nicer to have friends and family around to share a meal and provide them with real cutlery, instead of plastic knives and forks that are difficult to use? Single use plastic is a huge waste of our precious resources: we have to take oil out of the ground, refine it, use energy to manufacture it into product, use more fuel to transport it to the shops, the consumer uses even more fuel to drive to the shop to purchase the product and take it home, use it once and toss it in the bin! Doesn’t that sound stupid? That’s because it is. So spend your money wisely on good quality cutlery that will last a lifetime and use it all the time. You’ll be taking a lot of pressure off the planet, and save money too.
