Narayana Peesapaty, founder of India-based company Bakeys, has created edible cutlery (namely spoons) which is produced using the flour of food grains.
Forbes published an article on the cutlery, describing how it will help reduce plastic waste, which can take 450 years to decompose.
The cutlery is available for purchase through Bakeys’ website, and available with sweet and savory flavors. Currently all three flavors of spoon are out of stock.
You can also find similar edible spoons on Amazon:
