Single-use plastics are designed to be thrown away after one use and can’t be recycled. These products end up in landfills or waterways, endangering wildlife and the environment. In an effort to create a more sustainable future, Western Australia imposed a ban on single-use plastics which has forced businesses to adapt.
In response to this ban, Plus Eight alumn Edible Cutlery created a sustainable solution. Although wooden and paper alternatives existed before plastic, Edible Cutlery took this a step further by creating products that could also be consumed, therefore eliminating waste.
The world adapting to using cutlery that can be eaten after use or composted would make a huge impact on the environment. Co-Founder, Abhinav shared that his products break down in less than three weeks, in vast contrast to plastic cutlery taking over 200 years to break down.
Edible Cutlery is crafted from 100% plant-based, nut-free, multigrain ingredients, making it an eco-friendly choice that aligns with environmental goals but also provides a delightful dining experience.
Edible Cutlery recently participated in the City of Canning Sprint, run by Plus Eight, which is a 6-week program designed to help early-stage startups progress in their business journey. Abhinav described the program as a “transformative period of growth and learning.”
