The other day I came across an article in EarthShare about the growing B.Y.O. Sticks movement in Asia. At first I did not think much of this article until you begin to realize the impact of disposable chopsticks. The Chinease government estimates that China cuts down nearly 25 million trees per year to support the disposable chopstick habit. This number seems far fetched like many green facts until you hear that China consumes on average 45 billion chopsticks per year. Most of these chopsticks end up in landfills.

Nalgene appears to be making a come back in the water bottle world. Nalgene as a company started in the 1940's as a supplier of plastics used in the medical industry. In the early 1970's, Nalgene Outdoors was created and they became famous for their resusable water bottles. The most famous by far was their 1 liter wide mouth bottle loved and used by hikers worldwide.
In 2007 it became clear that Bisphenol A (BPA) posed a human health threat and the Nalgene brand along with plastic water bottles in general fell out of favor to stainless steel water bottles. Soon after Nalgene replaced their plastics used, but the fear of BPA led to the rise in popularity of stainless steel bottles and such popular brands as Klean Kanteen.
