A problem which I had noticed before the pandemic has multiplied drastically over the last year. It looks like this:
Here you see plastic cutlery and napkins which have arrived with take-out orders. It’s not even a whole year’s worth, as I was able to rehome a large chunk a while ago with someone in my Buy Nothing group who needed them for her office. Yes, we’ve been eating more take-out during the pandemic to support local business. No, we didn’t ask for any of this cutlery.
Through no fault of my own I’m now in possession of:
- Wrapped packets (sets): 41
- Wrapped Single Pieces: 45 (Knives 9 Forks 35 Spoons 1)
- Unwrapped Single Pieces: 107 (Knives 34 Forks 65 Spoons 8)
