Waribashi anxiety

Hello everyone! Its so late its morning. Just got the first couple of pages of the website up. Here's my first blog entry.

I have anxiety about disposable chopsticks. In 1999, before I went to Japan, they were just stats, shocking ones and huge numbers, but still just numbers. Then I saw how many used ones I could collect that were going straight to the landfill. Eleven little noodle shops in 12 days. 15,000+ waribashi. Here is a photo of one of the stacks.

So now, The Waribashi Project will be launching collection on a much bigger scale within the next few days. So stay tuned...
