What’s old is new again with ChopValue’s wood and bamboo creations. They’re helping reduce waste by urban-harvesting used chopsticks from restaurants and—wait for it—cleaning and upcycling ‘em into all kinds of gems for the home. (Wait till you see the end-grain cutting boards.) Everything is produced in microfactories that conserve energy and resources, helping support a more circular economy. Yeah...this is about as sustainable as it gets.
