1.5 billion disposable chopsticks are used worldwide, per week. Most travel thousands of kilometers for a single use and then straight to the landfill. We have the responsibility to do better.
ChopValue was founded by Felix Böck, a wood engineer with a PhD in bamboo composites who quickly realized the potential of under-utilized resources when learning about the amount of wood waste found in major North American cities. With this knowledge, the idea of urban harvesting was born.
ChopValue has recycled over 60 million chopsticks from collection partners such as restaurants, food courts, and hotels, effectively diverting them from the landfill. ChopValue’s principles continue to be rooted in a sense of responsibility to educate, inspire, and lead by example, one chopstick at a time.
Through this partnership, ChopValue and Natural Pod are offering the ‘ChopValue height-adjustable desk set’ for students, educators and administrators. This set is composed of a height-adjustable desk, lockable filing cabinet and 6 hex wall tiles. Together these items use over 15,000 recycled chopsticks. Contact us using the form below to learn more.
