Travel smart: have your utensils at the ready.

When you're travelling or eating out, you don’t want to be caught short without a fork! To avoid having to use plastic utensils (or eat with your hands!) keep a set of washable cutlery (tramping ‘sporks’ are great), reusable chopsticks and a stainless steel straw set in your bag or glovebox. Do your bit to keep plastic straws, cutlery and chopsticks out of landfills and waterways. A simple, effective and convenient way to protect our oceans, one knife, fork and spoon at a time!

The brainchild of an eco-conscious young surfer and ocean lover, The Good Source sells stainless steel straw sets in a handy travel pouch (and great beeswax wraps).
