Bring your own chopsticks! If you’re favorite Asian restaurant uses disposable chopsticks try to remember to bring your own reusable ones from home. At one of my favorite websites, http://www.reusablebags.com/ they have great little kits with a knife, fork, spoon and chopsticks in it’s own carrying case. One statistic I heard was that Japan alone in one year uses enough disposable chopsticks to be 3 times higher than Mt. Fuji. Wow! Most of the wood for chopsticks comes from China. Deforestation from harvesting wood for chopsticks is contributing to the horrible air issues in Beijing, China.
