I’ll admit, there’s nothing about that headline that could even remotely be predicted. Each word seems more improbable than the next, like predictive text gone absolutely bonkers, but it’s true… the man behind Happy and Get Lucky just partnered with Pentatonic, a circular economy company, to release a portable multi-use cutlery set that’ll make you feel happy and the planet feel lucky. Pardon my horrible wordplay, it’s a Friday night where I’m from, even if it’s being spent at home.
Titled the Pebble, these gorgeously vivid and funky cutlery tools are a collaboration between Pentatonic and i am OTHER, a creative collective assembled by Pharrell, and are made mostly from recycled materials. The unusually vibrant cutlery set is named after the pebble-shaped container it comes in. The colored container is made using plastic recycled from music CDs, and perfectly houses a spoon, knife, fork, a pair of chopsticks, and even a collapsible drinking straw. Plastic handles for the cutlery are crafted from recycled food packaging, while the cutlery themselves are crafted from steel, with a highly durable anodized titanium coating for strength as well as to give the cutlery their unmistakable vibrant purple hue.
The Pebble serves as a vibrant, desirable, eco-friendly, and multi-use alternative to single-use plastic cutlery… a problem that results in 40 billion plastic utensils being thrown out as waste each year in USA alone. Designed as a quirky, candy-esque alternative to the boring white plastic sporks that come with packaged food, the Pebble’s foldable/collapsible cutlery can be used and reused multiple times. The grippy, rounded outer case and the added carabiner clip makes it easy to carry around or to secure it to a backpack while camping outdoors, and that absolutely delicious color combination should really get your mouth watering and your heart singing!
