Recycling chopsticks

An interesting short film on YouTube about a recycling/upcycling project in Vancouver:

How Used Chopsticks Are Turned Into Tables, Tiles, And Other

I found the sheer scale of ‘chopstick single use’ - quoted in the film for both Vancouver and China -astounding (chiefly because I’d never thought about it before).

Yeah, quite ridiculous how much disposable stuff gets sent with delivery food especially when people are at home and so will already have cutlery

I made a light-shade out of some leftover chopsticks once during lockdown boredom :wink:

Not quite to the standard of the products in the video but was a bit of fun :slight_smile:


That is a great film. I never realised that many chopsticks were used everyday. And the finished products looked so good. Makes you wonder what else can be recycled.

Cheers, quite interesting!
