AWSI Musings: Chew on this — A Spoonman’s Story…

We introduced the “SNapkin” concept in this post. Here’s another to peruse and ponder.  Enjoy!—The Gang


While catching up on reading, we landed on a story about a man’s efforts to create (and fund) edible spoons.

A DECADE AGO, Indian scientist Narayana Peesapaty set out to reinvent the humble disposable spoon. If we could eat our utensils after a meal instead of throwing them out, he figured, that would go a long way toward slowing the world’s rising tide of plastic garbage.

The Wall Street Journal piece we read, mentioned a three-minute, 40-second video created by Better India (a Bangalore-based website that focuses on uplifting news stories) which went crazy viral and triggered massive amounts of interest:

Emails started flooding in at one per second. Each time Peesapaty finished taking one call, he’d hang up and find dozens more waiting.

And it wasn’t just the volume of calls and messages that surprised Peesapaty and his wife, Pradnya Keskarsays. It was their quasi-spiritual tone, as one in 10 emails, would read something like:

“The collective consciousness of mankind has changed because of your video.”

Here’s the video:

ASWI, this inspirational story is one about persistence — Which is way larger (and more significant) than merely doing something environmentally-friendly.

Check out the back story here and here (the Bakeys website).
