Since nature is full of emergent properties, sustainability is always an emerging concept. Sustainability is about maintaining something indefinitely into the foreseeable future. Consequently, to be sustainable we have to anticipate and successful adapt to the changes ahead. Sustainability is a process, not a prescription. The process always requires social and ecological as well as economic dimensions. There is therefor no simple definition. It’s a journey we embark on together, not a formula upon which we agree.
Every year, 350 billion pieces of disposable plastic cutlery and wooden chopsticks are discarded in the United States, Japan and India. Research scientist Narayana Peesapaty has come up with a solution: edible cutlery and chopsticks. These products are made of millet, rice and wheat, contain no preservatives, and have a shelf life of 3 years. They will also decompose in 3 to 7 days (unless they are eaten). The use of this cutlery is not only healthier (plastics leach toxins), but promotes environmental, economic and social justice. Reduce your consumption of single use plastics - carry your own set of cutlery wherever you go.
