Chopsticks could be thing of past for China
After at least 4,000 years the Chinese are being urged to put down the chopsticks and pick up a knife and fork instead.
The chair of a state-owned lumber company says the sticks are destroying forests.
He says China goes through 80-billion pairs of disposable wooden chopsticks every year an equivalent, he says, of 20 million trees.
He’s urging the national people’s Congress to take action.
