In the last few years, we have seen a number of brand new sustainable brands and alternative products popping up. From silcone lunch boxes to reusable menstrual products, the trend is really to make just about anything last as long as possible and we are here for it.
This World Environment Day, if you are looking to invest in more sustainable options or are looking to swap your disposable items with reusable ones, here are some of the best and most recent inventions that are sure to change your everyday lifestyle.
1. Crunch Cutlery
So you’ve stopped using plastic straws. Now, let’s move on from disposable plastic cutlery, too. We throw away 500 million units of disposable cutlery in Singapore every year—and even more during the pandemic with the uptake in takeaway and delivery meals.
Born (coincidentally during Singapore’s circuit breaker period in 2020) out of a need to address this issue of single-use plastic waste, local start-up Crunch Cutlery has created a range of edible cutlery so you can have your cake—and eat it (and the cutlery) too.
They come in a variety of fun flavours such as strawberry, banana goji and brown sugar oats, and are supercharged with flax, chia and whole wheat so you can get your boost of omega 3, vitamin B3, lignans and fibre.
