Their ability to fold means they're great for camping and picnics as well as home and office use. They pack and ship so easily, and I love to bring them out in the summer to hold the glorious bounty of fruits and vegetables and then hide them, folded in a drawer, through the winter when there's much less fresh stuff available. Great for gifts, too, whether they're filled with homegrown produce, farmer's-market-bought soaps or goodies, or fair trade chocolate... or if they're empty, showing their natural beauty.
Choose from four folding bowls, in the following sizes:
Soap Bowl, $6.00: 6 inches long, 4 inches wide, 2 inches deep.
Small Bowl, $11.00: 12 inches long, 7 inches wide, 2 inches deep.
Medium Bowl, $16.00: 14 inches long, 8 inches wide, 3 inches deep.
Large Bowl, $22: 14 inches long, 12 inches wide, 4 inches deep.
The idea behind these oh-so-cool bowls is simple: collect post-use, single-use chopsticks from restaurants in China, thoroughly clean them, sanitize them at extremely high temperature and pressure, and use them to make high-quality accents for the consumerís living space. The products are fairly made, and although they only put a small dent in the billions of chopsticks that are used once and then thrown away each year, it's a definite start.
(To avoid contributing to the huge piles of chopstick waste, carry a Bamboo Utensil Set in your purse, coat pocket, briefcase, bike panniers, tote bag, or glovebox. You'll find the chopsticks in the set are much superior to what you'll see in restaurants, and you'll feel so much better only using disposable chopsticks in these beautifully-crafted, unique products.)
