Hemptensils is a plant-based disposable utensil brand that's introducing forks, spoons and knives that are totally bio-based, compostable and a better alternative to similar single-use plastic products.
Hemptensils were developed by engineer and GreenTek Founder Jordan Hinshaw, who recognizes that "There are 40 billion single use utensils used in America every year, of which barely nine percent are recycled. And considering the fact that businesses are using more plastic during the COVID-19 pandemic than they previously were, there could be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050."
These sustainable utensils have the potential to support a healthier future, especially as the products help to minimize reliance on plastic—and since they're compostable, they have the potential to break down over time even if they do happen to end up at the landfill.
