Stylish and functional recycled chopsticks from Kwytza Kraft
Bryan Parks' idea was simple: collect post-use, single-use chopsticks from restaurants in China (where he was living when this came to him), thoroughly clean them, sanitize them at extremely high temperature and pressure, and use them to make high-quality accents for your home. This idea has become Kwytza Kraft pronounced k-why-tsa).
Billions of single-use chopsticks are consumed annually and it takes, by some estimates, 25 million trees and bamboo plants to support this process. Kwytza's collection of home goods features natural and plant-dyed chopsticks that are certainly eye-catching. Their folding bowls, shown in the picture above, are one of their best sellers. When not in use, they simply fold in half for easy storage - save a tree and safe space in your house. Also available are table lamps, waste baskets, magazine racks, CD holders, night lights, purses, jewelery, and accessories for your dinner table.
