Reusable sporks are cool and friendly to the environment

I have been trying to cut back on lunches at restaurants and that means eating in the office more. I always feel guilty when throwing away a plastic spoon or fork after one use. We were using disposables in the kids' lunches too so I was looking for a better solution. Then one night I was wandering through the camping area at a local retail store and found these cool sporks in different colors.

They're made by Light My Fire and come in 19 colors plus there's a titanium version. In addition to being a spoon and fork there is a serrated edge on the fork that can be used for light cutting of vegetables, salads or soft meats. This is one handy gadget!
