Fight Cancer by Reducing Your Forkprint

Breast Cancer Awareness Month may be over, but that isn’t stopping the company To-Go Ware from continuing to help fund a cure. Check out this To-Go Ware RePEaT Utensil Set (in a pretty Beet color), because for the rest of 2009, 10 percent of the purchase price of this bamboo set will be donated to the Breast Cancer Fund!

Consider it a toolkit for life on the go, says To-Go Ware. A handy carabiner on the back lets you clip and carry a fork, knife, spoon and chopsticks wherever you roam, and RePEaT utensil holders give plastic bottles a second shot at a useful life, they say — no landfills necessary. And what’s with the funky RePEaT name? Well, it’s made out of RPET (recycled PET plastic), and the To-Go Ware folks like to call it “RePEaT” because it lets plastic reincarnate into something kinder and gentler.

OK, so in this handy-dandy kit, you’ll get bamboo flatware and chopsticks that are heat-resistant and won’t absorb flavors. Everything is lightweight, strong and long-lasting, and the wood utensils are top-grade, and made with food-safe wood oil.

For just $11.95, this makes for a great holiday something for friends, family, that hard-to-buy-for co-worker or wait — why not give yourself this gift that keeps on giving?

Want to learn about how this company got started? It’s a pretty cool story, really, that started when one University of Michigan college student sat down for some ice cream with her sister.
