Thin chopsticks

In China, 45 billion pairs of chopsticks are consumed each year, 1.66 million cubic meters of wood are consumed, and about 25 million large trees need to be cut down, reducing the forest area by 2 million square meters. This will speed up the reduction of forests. This time, chopsticks will be improved in design, and other areas of chopsticks will be thinned under the condition of ensuring normal use. This can save 40% of the wood. So as to effectively alleviate the reduction of forests and protect the ecological balance.
