Chopsticks plus / Chopsticks with a toothpick

Chopsticks plus

25.5 billion sets of disposable tableware are consumed every year 
in China, this kind of tableware with chopsticks and toothpicks is simple designed but resource wasting and of great environment damage. However, after re-designation, the new tableware is made from the bamboo which has shorter growing period and can make both the chopsticks and toothpicks in the same processing. The new design can make full advantage of the resource and increase the original resource efficiency because there is almost no waste in the possession.
