Single-use plastic cutlery is one of the biggest contributors to the plight caused by plastic pollution. There are over 1600 known species, with thousands of uses. One of which is for the production of cutlery.

The topography of Thanh Hoa province (large swathes of the region are covered in steep, rocky mountains) and the high annual rainfall (3 times more than the average in London) makes it the perfect location bamboo to grow in abundance.
