Gallery: Triangle Tree’s Edible Spoons Are a Tasty Alternative to Plast...

 

In an effort to create an alternative to disposable plastic silverware, Triangle Tree has produced Edible Spoons, a spoon that you can eat after finishing your meal. Made of corn, the spoons are biodegradable and can either be composted or consumed. The Edible Spoon is also designed to break apart after use to make snacking easier. Created with all organic ingredients, the spoon comes in three flavors (plain, spicy, or sweet), and can act as a novel snack or an eco-friendly alternative to petroleum products.

    What a novel idea of material substitution in this drastic age of plastic everywhere be it in the form of spoons, plates, just about everything. Can you tell me;
    1. what the cost per spoon is
    2. the ingredients besides corn
    3. approximate shelf life of the item

    Besides, I can see that the spoons come packaged in a plastic bag and by the look of it, it is multi-layered(plastic with aluminium foil inner lining, which can neither degrade nor get recycled)- correct me if I am wrong. Can the packaging not be replaced with material that can either degrade or is recyclable atleast. It would then close the loop on waste!
