40 Billion plastic cutlery pieces are thrown out every year by Americans -- a statistic that will hopefully decrease with the invention of these 3-in-1 utensils. The Unitensil is a foldable eating utensil designed by Brooklyn-based Theo Steward-Stand that is a spoon, fork and knife in one. An alternative to carrying silverware around, the Unitensil is lightweight, flexible and pocket-sized.

Ideal for everyday life as well as activities like camping, traveling, mountain climbing and similar active pursuits, the 3-in-1 utensils are the size of a business card. The 5g tool is made out of polypropylene and despite its bendy nature, still offers a functional amount of rigidity. Retailing at less than a cup of coffee, the Unitensil is made in Massachusetts, thereby supporting US manufacturing.
