We aim to increase awareness about the deforestation for the production of disposable chopsticks and educate about salamanders and their diversity within the United States, while raising money to support salamander conservation, education, and research.
In 2006, activists launched the BYOC (Bring Your Own Chopsticks) movement in response to the shocking number of chopsticks begin used and disposed of each year. Learn more about BYOC and how you can participate.
It's time for us to rethink the use of this planet's resources and start making small differences that will have a large effect. Sign our petition and encourage others to stop the use of disposable chopsticks and bring their own to restaurants.
In addition to the disssemination of information about deforestation, ChopsticksforSalamanders.org also strives to provide an alternative to disposable chopsticks.
