Summary
Plastic is cheap, lightweight, and has great barrier properties. But is it getting too popular? Plastic production has increased more than 20-fold since the 1960s, and plastic currently holds a 25% share of the global packaging market. The majority of plastic is not recycled after use, however, leaving behind waste that can last for centuries. Edible cutlery offers a way to address the plastic waste dilemma.

Key Findings
-Edible cutlery made from food-grade ingredients can completely eliminate plastic waste as it is intended to be eaten after use.

-The amount of waste generated by disposable cutlery is stunning. In India alone, about 120 billion plastic utensils are used each year, generating huge amounts of waste.

-Edible cutlery that is not consumed after use can degrade in as little as 10 days, completely eliminating waste.

-Water use and carbon dioxide emissions for edible cutlery are a fraction of those for disposable utensils made from petroleum products.

Synopsis
ForeSights: Edible Cutlery examines a small but put potentially game-changing solution to the problem of solid waste generated by disposable cutlery. Less than one third of plastic packaging is recycled globally; the rate may be much worse for black plastic utensils due to unique material sorting issues. Edible cutlery and eventually edible dishes and cups could help overcome problems with solid waste.
This report was compiled using Canadean's ForeSights methodology, which aims to identify new concepts that could influence the market in fast-moving consumer goods.
