1,000 Pieces of Plastic Silverware I Found Littered on the Ground

There are 1,000 pieces of plastic silverware in this picture, and for the record there are...

646 Spoons
304 Fork
29 Knives
18 Sporks

Based on these numbers, a lot of people could probably avoid using plastic silverware altogether by just keeping a metal spoon and fork in their work locker like I do, or in their purse, backpack, glove compartment, etc.

Plastic silverware might not seem like a big deal, but if you eat 3 meals a day, that's over 1,000 meals a year. And if you have the habit of using throw-away silverware, you could end up throwing away as much plastic silverware as there is in this picture every year.

And even the devil himself would have to agree, that a single reusable metal pitchfork wouldn't be anywhere near as sinister of a weapon as tons and tons of disposable plastic pitchforks that will each eventually break down into a zillion little pieces of toxic terror known as "microplastics"!
