Whenever you get some plastic ware you always wish for silverware. No matter if its at a mall food court or somewhere similar you always wish it would survive. The problem is cost. Manufacturers tend to cut cost by reducing the thickness. Think of it. If you had a spoon that weighed 5 grams and reduced the thickness by 20% you end up getting a reduction down to 4 grams. Put this in dollars and assuming a spoon cost 5 bux you can save a buck each spoon. Multiple it my a million or even a billion then you end up with a huge number.
The cost on the consumer is nothing but complaint. There is no way we can find a solution to this unless we find a better FUTURE material. A material that is cheap enough and can be used in the food sector. Meanwhile rigid enough to carry out a meal without breaking. So here is a solution to all the agony.
The Knork Eco has an objective that is pretty aggressive.
- Get rid of non-biodegradable single-use plastics from our life-cycle
- Replace regular cutlery with eco-friendly, biodegradable, robust and comfortable to use cutlery.
- NO MORE horrible disposable forks and spoons!!!!
The polymer resulting from this mixture is a moldable sturdy material that feels like glossy plastic and feels like it as well. It is food-safe, dishwasher safe, and biodegrades in 2 years.
Make note that Sugarcane and bamboo are two of the fastest growing plants in the world. This makes Astrik a material that caters to an incredible high demand of disposable cutlery without any hassle.
The Knork Eco is a type of SPORK but the name is a mixture of Knife and Fork – hence the name KNORK. It feels exactly like plastic, looks like plastic and can do everything plastic can.
