EkoWareUSA® makes handy sustainable products w/ authentic materials; no petroleum-based or multi-phase chemical synthetics. Plastics like GFN, PC, PE or Fiber Glass Plastic has a cheap feel that will eventually degrade releasing toxins over time and/or is difficult to recycle.  Lighter weight doesn’t mean quality.

The Core êkö Product is designed as an ultra-portable, no-fuss 3-in-1 cutlery solution made that they’ll be more convenient to carry and use instead of resorting to using single-use.  It comes in a sturdy machine/hand washable pouch/napkin.  êkö was conceived of during a South Pacific dive trip with eco-minded friends as a way to curb our reliance on single-use plastic flatware use which ends up as pollution or, even worse, in our oceans & ecosystems. We want to help change this.

Global Climate Change is real. êkö is designed with these stats in mind:

  • The average American uses 240+ disposable single-use flatware a year.
  • 1/3 of recyclable and compostable flatware ends up as litter, landfill, or worse.
  • Biodegradable flatware requires an additional industrial process to degrade.
  • Wood flatware uses trees & leaves a high carbon footprint as a single-use.
  • Fiber Glass (Fiber Reinforced Plastics) will eventually degrade releasing toxins.
  • The effects of single-use refuse on our ecosystems & biodiversity is alarming.
  • Millions of pieces of single-use cutlery are made and discarded worldwide because they are a cheap, forlorn, archaic, solution from another era.
