During this global pandemic, restaurant takeaway has become a safe option for many who are stuck at home or at the office, and restaurants often provide plastic cutlery for their customers. However, convenience comes at a cost; 

Like many disposed plastic items, non-biodegradable utensils negatively impact the environment. Kay Chan has realized how important it is to be able to provide environmentally sustainable cutlery as an alternative to traditional ones, taking into account the impossibility of fast-food restaurants to replace the cheap option of single-use plastics. Her mission is to create compostable utensils made from edible ingredients, flour and water, which will be yummy, easy to make, affordable, and sustainable.
