This Mother’s day, there’s no need to scramble around looking for a special gift for that special person.

Bakeys – Sustainable Cutlery
We are all well aware of the threats that continuous usage of plastic poses for us. Sea animals are choking on the plastic waste that we dump into our waters. The plastic problem is an insidious one with no direct remedy. All we can do is discard the use of plastic wherever possible and swap it for some other biodegradable and eco-friendly alternative. Bakeys Edible Cutlery is exactly what its name indicates wherein the cutlery comes in three flavours – savoury (salt and cumin), sweet (sugar) and plain. This is a win-win situation as not only is the cutlery bio-degradable but also edible! In 2018, Bakeys had partnered with Cafe Coffee Day to be their main supplier of these spoons. They are natural, they are bio-degradable and best of all they are tasty.

All in all, make sure you celebrate a sustainable Mother’s Day!
