A new bra inspired by Japanese cuisine features recycled chopsticks, one cup resembling a rice bowl, and the other looks like a serving of miso soup. Chopsticks in Japan are disposable which is causing the loss of huge swaths of forest; reusable chopsticks are encouraged. Lingerie maker Triumph International has integrated reusable chopsticks into a funky bra. "My Hashi Bra" (my chopstick bra) has collapsible chopsticks conveniently stashed. As for comfort? Well sometimes funky isn't comfortable.
"The concept bra, which comes with a pair of collapsible chopsticks, has a Japanese dining table theme -- the right cup consists of a rice bowl, the left cup a miso soup bowl, and a removable chopstick-rest lies between the cups," Reuters explained.
"Holsters, made of cloth and placed on the sides of the cups, hold the chopsticks while pushing the breasts to create cleavage.
"Being eco-friendly is now fashionable in Japan, where people are increasingly carrying around reusable bags and chopsticks."
In August we reported Japan wanted to start a recycling program for its 90,000 tonnes of chopsticks. It'll be interesting to see what other eco-innovative they come up with!
