Chopstick Folding Basket

Chopstick Folding Basket

One of the great questions that has been pondered by mankind for centuries is what to do with used chopsticks? Throw them in the trash and let them take up valuable space in landfills? Take them outside and build a bonfire with them? Sand them down and make toothpicks from them? No answer, at least until now, has been satisfactory. Arise and rejoice, because some innovative people have now saved large numbers of chopsticks from these afteruses, as they have developed an innovative and utilitarian method of disposing of them, through recycling. Cleaned, sterilized, and painted, their future no longer involves fire or large underground holes, but rather elegant living rooms, dining rooms, salons, conference rooms, restaurants, and offices, in places of honor by people who believe in green living.. Now, old, discarded wooded eating utensils can become a Chopstick Folding Basket.

Display fruit, candy, condiment packets, or rare gems, in your unique Chopstick Folding Basket, and it will be the basket that is the conversation piece.

Your Chopstick Folding Basket can, as the name implies, be folded up and easily stored when not in use.

Reclaimed Wood and its Unlimited Uses

In the age of titanium, plastics, and glass-based fiber-optics, the beauty and versatility of real wood retains its ongoing position at the top of the list of preferred materials for a wide variety of consumer products. Changing attitudes, the expansion of green living, and the widespread realization of the need to promote sustainability in modern society has however brought about the ever-growing use of old wood for the production of new products. Old buildings are now dismantled by hand, preserving wood planks, instead of having wrecking balls turn old walls into rubble, leaky old wine casks are turned into furniture (like the wine barrel side table shown here) and serving pieces, and when stretches of railroad track are removed or replaced, old ties now become outdoor benches and landscape elements.Wine Barrell Side Table

Products created from reclaimed wood are all inherently one-of-a-kind pieces, separating them from the mundane, mass-produced sameness of 99% of products coming off assembly lines by the hundreds or by the thousands, or by the hundreds of thousands. Forests are preserved, ecological systems are undamaged, and carbon emissions are minimally if at all increased, when old wood is used anew. Continue reading

Save Our Forests With Recycled Paper Furniture

Many furniture manufacturers today observe environmentally friendly procedures and use recycled materials. Furniture companies that produce metal furniture are at the top of the list of producers of eco-friendly products from recycled metal, often employing less toxic and less wasteful manufacturing methods. Now, however, new heights in environmentally friendly and eco-safe production have been reached with the use of zBoard. zBoard is a product that itself is completely recyclable and is composed virtually entirely (99%) from recycled paper. It is now being used to produce stylish, contemporary furniture items that are less than half the weight of, but with the same strength as, particle board.

It took ten years to develop zBoard, but it was well worth the time, effort, and expense to produce a new raw material from old paper, a material that is used to craft furniture that is as solid and structurally sound as wood furniture and that with proper care will last as long as traditional wooded furniture.
