Chopsticks Bra Promotes Conservation
Posted on June 17, 2009
Edible panties are a tried-and-true gag gift, but lingerie designer Triumph International has taken it to a whole new level with their miso soup and rice themed bras.
My Chopsticks Bra is a bid to promote reusable chopsticks and reduce the waste that disposable utensils create. Japanese toss 25 billion chopsticks away annually.
“It’s a small step, but because many Japanese chopsticks are disposable, big chunks of forests are being cut down,” said Hiromi Shinta, spokeswoman for the company.
The bra comes with a pair of chopsticks and uses the soup and rice bowls – present at most Japanese meals – as the cups. The bra also has holders for the chopsticks between the cups. You can see it in action below.
