Single-use knives, spoons and forks are a major contributor to the growing plastic pollution crisis. An estimated 40 billion plastic utensils are thrown away each year in the United States alone. Startup Bakeys (India) produces edible cutlery to combat plastic waste.

For close to a decade the founder, Narayana Peesapaty, struggled to get his product to market. His factory was closed down, he was unable to pay his workers and his family home was on the line. Narayana: ”I was drinking a lot, getting angry. Getting frustrated. Why was such a good product not selling?”

When suddenly he became an overnight sensation with an explosive amount of media attention. He raised over $300,000 with two crowdfunding campaigns. How did he deal with this sudden influx in demand and the necessary production expansion? And how do his spoons fix the world?

What does a spoon taste like?
