Stickpecker Chopsticks

In Japan, the starting of a meal is marked by the ritual of pulling apart wooden chopsticks. However, disposable wooden chopsticks waste natural resources. In an attempt to save these resources, Japan initiated the "my chopsticks" movement. As the Japanese stopped using wooden chopsticks and moved to reusable ones, the pulling apart of wooden chopsticks feeling is missing. Stickpecker, a reusable pair of chopsticks, uses a magnet to recreated this pulling apart sensation.

You can buy them here for $44. They don't seem to be available in Canada or the US, so if you want to help out with this movement, check out eBay for some alternatives.
