Chopsticks Bra Promotes Conservation
June 17, 2009 | by RMJ

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.

  • I think you miss the point Emily Davison.
    Its about promoting chopstick recycling.

  • So is it made from recycled chopsticks? I couldn't get out of this article *how* it was promoting recycling except through the classic Japanese technique of "put a girl in a bikini in it and they will come".

  • I'd eat out of that.

  • A lot of Japanese already take their own chopsticks with them into restaurants. But if this gimmick helps promote the practice, then no hard done unless the model catches a cold….

  • man I want that bra now
