China produces 80 billion disposable chopsticks using 20 million trees every year. Inspired by Donna Keiko Ozawa's amazing work, I've analyzed this phenomenon and found two innovative solutions that could drastically limit the impact of this everyday object on the environment: the Tatami flavoured Chopstick Project and ChopValue.

Chopsticks have been around for over 5000 years and they play a fundamental role in many Asian cultures. They also represent the strengths of our ancestors and our cultural inheritance. Every year, throughout the world, hundreds of billions of disposable chopsticks are thrown away after a single use.
