Chopstick Bra's an Uplifting Experience

Chopstick BraBra maker Triumph International is pushing the green message with a bra it hopes will cut down on disposable chopsticks.

The "My Hashi Bra" (or My Chopstick Bra) comes with collapsible chopsticks stashed inside the body of the brassiere.

According to the company they are compact and form part of the bra's frame.

Triumph spokesperson Hiromi Shinta said: "Its small step, but because many Japanese chopsticks are disposable, big chunks of forests are being cut down. So we thought we could help promote the use of "My Chopsticks" and help cut down on disposable chopsticks."

Chopsticks were first used in China nearly 4,000 years ago and first went disposable in Japan about 130 years ago.

People in Japan throw away an estimated 25 billion pairs of wooden chopsticks every year, although many of these are made from recycled wood chips.
