While we are embroiled in a seemingly unsolvable challenge, Narayana Peesapaty has thought of a unique way to counter the “plastic” problem. He saw the obnoxious amounts of plastic we throw away in the name of disposable cutlery and the horrendous amounts of neurotoxins we consume while eating from plastic cutlery and decided that it had to be dealt with in a radical way. That’s when “Bakeys”, the “edible cutlery” range was born.
