    Are you implying that everyone should carry a spoon at all times? Maybe we should also carry steel pots and tin cups. That would certainly make air travel more interesting.

    Plastics are made from the leftovers `by-products` of refining oil into fuels. It`s better to use those by-products in a useful way, and provide people jobs in the process, than let them go to waste.

    Yes, It is always better to use a durable item and clean it then a throw-away product, but who the heck keeps a spoon on their person or in the car all the time ?

    Someone really doesn`t know much about chemistry. Polymer production of plastics and the use of plasticisers is nothing to do with left overs. The very idea that someone believes this is worrying

    Why point out the oil, shipping, manufacturing, etc. and then say, "just wash?" Why don`t we have to drill to an underground aquifer, lay miles and miles of pipe, dig a reservoir, create enough pressure for every house and apartment in the city to have running, filtered water, make soap (which I`m sure is itself a complicated process that, despite repeated viewings of Fight Club I really don`t understand), make plastic bottles for the soap, forge (or stamp -- whatever) flatware, create a distribution network to sell spoons, soap, faucets, and sponges, etc.

    Or you could just eat with your fingers...

    Yup, Omphalskept is right. Either way, we`re impacting the earth. We simply can`t live on it without impacting it in some way, and, given the society we`re all used to living in, it`s pretty much impossible that we could ever not impact the earth in some negative way. What we can do is try to impact it more sustainably--people might yell "hippy" or "liberal" or whatever they want, but let`s get real; we can`t afford to unsustainably deplete the Earth of its resources. It isn`t feasible in the long run.

    I stopped killing trees when I switched to steel wool and, 7 years later, I`m still using the same frayed piece. I rinse it with Clorox, which burns a little, but the pain is worth it since I no longer have to pay for professional anal bleaching.

    1. I wash and reuse the plastic spoons that I send in my kid`s school lunch each morning. If he loses it at school, no harm done, but we wash and reuse them when he brings them home. How is that different from manufacturing, washing, and reusing a metal spoon?

    2. Plastics are recycled. It says right on the box "Made from recycled materials"

    What`s the big deal?

    This is just a part of life in the modern, lazy world. Just like buying throw-away nappys (diapers to you yanks) is less effort that washing the damn things every day. Or using google earth instead of going to the shop and buying a map. Or ordering all your shopping online instead of going to the store. It`s no wonder everyone is becoming obese, pretty soon we will be able to do EVERYTHING without ever needing to leave the comfort of our own sofa.

    It`s pretty amazing that our society has reached a point where the effort necessary to make a spoon is considered to be more effort than retrieving water through pipes connected to large reservoirs that are very expensive, wasteful, and time-consuming, then using it with soap with ingredients that come from farms, chemicals, factories, and animals, just to wash a spoon when you`re done with it.

    but seriously, who comes up with this crap? disposable items have a purpose and are bought for those purposes. i don`t know anyone who uses plastic spoons once at home and throws them away, going through a box of spoons every week. nobody does that. fail post is fail.

    Its got the advantage that it`s light too.

    Anyway, what the caption fails to mention is that we extract oil and refine it in massive quantities, all of it pretty much automated.

    Damage to the environment? Minimal I say, since it`s just buried when it`s thrown out. Some damage when it`s made though, through the refining process.

    Overall it`s an inefficient and wasteful item, but there are worse evils in this world. Somehow I doubt a significant part of our petroleum production goes to plastic cutlery.

    bintish: The main use for oil refinement is for fuel, that is number 1, at the top of the list.

    Maybe you should look up the words polymer, naphthalene, melamine, and phthalate All come from either crude oil byproducts or coal tar byproducts.

    When 70 percent of the country doesn`t cook at home and eat out all the time, how would we use washable utensils?

    and yes, I made that statistic up but it`s gotta be damn close

    umm... who really buys plastic spoons to use at home? to go restaurants and huge events like family gatherings MAYBE we will use plastic, because who wants to wash 50 spoons?

    plastic spoons come in handy for example when a stranger goes to your house and eats. Not everybody likes to share their personal utensils.

    Cost of countless metal spoons, in the thousands, being washed and stolen every day at school > cost of plastic spoons.

    funbunny- that`s why there is soap, to wash dishes.
    smilinsam- my ex`s family would eat off paper plates at home for dinner, and use plastic silverware to eat. Too weird. My family ate dinner at home every night, and a member of the family cooked. I know that is not feasible for everyone, but you have to make the effort. It is so nice to eat at home with family, with good food.

    How about the process it takes to obtain the metal to make a traditional fork, and have it manufactured.. Same amount of effort.

    They forgot to mention the effort put in working to pay for the spoons. I personally spend about 10 to 15 percent of my income on cutlery, although I do consider the metal type to be disposable as well.

    Too bad plastic spoons are generally used for parties when there are more people than metal spoons (I only have 3 spoons).

    Same effort initially, but of course you don`t dispose of a metal spoon after one use, do you? :P

    This hippy crap also neglects the fact that regular cutlery is washed with dish soap or dishwasher detergent which is packaged in PLASTIC.

    And you can get about 100 washes out of one bottle McGovern. Does one really need to be a hippy to realize we are a wasteful society?

    100 washes requires the infrastructure to deliver 100 washes of water to your house
    that`s a lot of effort too

    CrakrJak: Polymers, as I`m sure you know are long chains of repeating units of a monomer. Most are synthesised from a useful fraction of crude oil, however there are polymers made from other elements, not just a backbone of carbon.

    Naphthalene was first synthesized from a substance found with coal in about 1930. Most Naphthalene is now synthesised from other substances, including alcohols and benzene. Naphthalene is also found as a fraction of crude but is far from a waste product.

    Melamine is not found or produced from oil, it is a ring of Nitrogen and carbon with amine (one nitrogen two hydrogen) groups at each carbon. It is synthesised from Calcium Cyanide.

    Phthalate isn`t even a chemical, perhaps the chemical group of phthalates is what is meant? Phthalates are produced from a useful fraction of crude oil. Using this fraction, the Phthalates are synthesised and were designed to be used as plasticisers.

    Apologies this is so long, I dislike inaccur

    I dislike inaccuracy. None of the chemicals you mentioned are from waste products in oil, all were designed by chemists for a purpose from a starting reagent.

    "Hippy Crap"

    ...that`s what every other comment reads... wasteful, irresposible, selfish twats is what i translate from your comments...

    and what`s so bad about being a hippy anyway? i`ll be living happily, while the rest of you mouth-breathers continue to pay to eat mutated processed "food" with your plastic spoons and get cancer. :D

    You`re saying it`s easier to wash and prepare 100 tablespoons that cost $10 for a set of four than a baggy of plastic spoons that cost like $6 for a set of 200.

    If I get a plastic spoon from, say, a Wendy`s, I usually keep it for quite a while. I just stick it in my work cooler. I do this with plastic forks too. Then I always have them there if I need them for my lunch.
