I bought a set of these chopsticks after seeing a fellow traveler in Tibet use them. From above photo I find out they are even cooler – the wood is from recycled baseball bats. Why not bring your own chopsticks to a restaurant instead of using virgin bamboo or wood sticks? China is introducing a tax on chopsticks, because they are losing their forests… But luckily there is a new movement and more and more people bring their own.
