Albatross Takeback Ware
Albatross Take Back Ware is a reusable silverware set designed so you can easily Take It Back With You Wherever You Go.
Your new, mobile fork, spoon and knife clip together for compact transport and come in a hemp bag that you can keep them in for on-the-go eating.
Take Back Ware is quite special though because it is made in part from upcycled shaving blades that Albatross collects via the Albatross Blade Take Back Program. The blades get melted down into molten steel and combined with new steel to make Take Back Ware. As such, they recently set the ambitious goal of getting back 100% of the blades they sell; this level of circular use is exactly the type of Big Systems shift they seek to create with this product.
Through Albatross Take Back Ware, Albatross hopes to help better normalize the idea of having reusable silverware with you when you, say, order take out, eat lunch at work and school, or are just going about your day and get hungry.
WHY DO THEY DO IT?
- 100 Million plastic utensils are thrown away every day in the United States alone.
- "Compostable" plastics may be better than those derived from petrochemicals, but the fact is we need to rethink the disposable economy; it is simply a waste of resources.
- Bringing your Take Back Ware with you is actually pretty easy to do. We hope you have a reusable water bottle by now and bringing your Take Back Ware with you is pretty similar.
