The spoons are made from various grains and millet, a grass seed grown in dry regions that is used in cereals and other foods.  The founders’ aim is to compete cost wise to replace the 40 billion non- biodegradable plasticware used each year worldwide.

Available in tea spoon and soup spoon sizes, the utensils holds up for 25 minutes in hot liquids and 45 minutes in cold.  And there are eight flavors from which to choose.
