DESIGNER: Bryan Parks
This basket proves that sustainability can be beautiful in many ways. While living in China, designer Bryan Parks was shocked to learn that an estimated 25 million trees and bamboo plants are used every year to make single-use chopsticks. This inspired the idea of collecting thousands of recycled bamboo chopsticks from restaurants to create practical, fair-trade, counter-top storage baskets. After being cleaned and sanitized at high temperatures and stained naturally with tea leaves, a fruit basket is born. It folds in half for easy storage.
