This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Magware have been designed to address a major problem facing our planet. We throw away billions of single use plastic utensils every year, and many of them end up in our Oceans and Waterways. Plastics never fully break down but rather degrade into small pieces that resemble food scraps to fish and other sea animals. The Ocean Conservancy lists plastic utensils as among the items “most deadly” to sea turtles, sea birds, and other Ocean creatures due to their size and to the ease they enter our waterways.
We think the Bring Your Own (BYO) Cutlery movement could help reduce the number of disposable utensils that get thrown away every year. The same way as carrying drink bottles has started to become ubiquitous to people’s everyday lives, we hope to see non-disposable utensils being used in the same way. Magware utensils are a simple light-weight solution to help in this mission, by making them as organized and easy to carry as possible. We really hope that by promoting this movement, we can have a positive effect in helping against this crisis that is growing exponentially every year.
As of November 29th, this project has raised $190,000 of their $10,000 goal. This project has 20 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $1, you will get project updates. For a pledge of $34, you will get one Magware set. To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fullwindsor/magware-magnetic-flatware?
