2/3 of a chopstick / tableware

2/3 of a chopstick

Chinese will consume nearly 1660000 cubic meters of the wood annually for the use of disposable chopsticks.The government and the society called for reducing the use of disposable chopsticks, but didn't get any promotion.Although this design will not reduce the use of disposable chopsticks, but we can reduce the cost of the amount of wood by reducing the length of each chopsticks.Through the reserach,we find that two thirds of the chopsticks will touch foods , but the rear-end part will not.The rear-end part need only cleaning by normal way.Only two thirds will be consumed.In a word, this design will reduce one third of the cost of wood.
