That’s A Great Idea


An Indian company has decided to tackle the problem of disposable cutlery, which is just one of the many things that contribute significantly to our global waste problem

 

 

Some might say that this is just a tiny grain of sand in a beach full of problems. Personally, I like it. Many people working together on a global issue, and tackling many different parts of the problem at the same time, are definitely steps in the right direction. Would it be better if we can tackle it with one, big solution? Sure, but that’s unlikely to happen, so in the meantime I’ll take these kinds of inventions with a smile on my face.

    That’s even better than the biodegradable utensils made from corn, which, if the test run in my home compost is any indication, are about as biodegradable as eggshells.

    Short of ridding the planet of all humans, I don’t think there is “one big solution”. Instead, we need to encourage as many people as possible to be working on solutions to our many, many, (many) problems. This is yet another way that universally accessible quality education can be justified for selfish reasons.
