Realize your dream

One of the traditional Chinese culture is to eat with chopsticks

Even though the economy is developed and the cultures between countries are blending, some habits of western countries are gradually entering our lives.

Just like western food, many of us like it. We all know that we need to use knives and forks to eat Western food. Even so, our life still depends on traditional chopsticks.

Recently, chopsticks in China are very hot

There is a famous chopstick designer who started chopstick design since he graduated from university. His chopsticks can be regarded as a luxury in China. He specializes in personal customization, including Sandalwood chopsticks, golden nanmu chopsticks, and other rare chopsticks.

The chopsticks used in ordinary families are mostly made of birch and bamboo.

Of course, it doesn't exclude precious wood such as Phoebe, yellow pear and so on.

It symbolizes wealth and auspiciousness, and it is also a symbol of identity.

Our chopsticks are square at one end and round at the other, which is based on the "round sky and place" in China

In addition, most chopsticks are 6 inches and 7 minutes long, which is also based on the fact that they symbolize people's seven emotions and six desires.

It can be seen that China's cultural heritage is profound. There is a story behind the origin of everything.

The custom chopsticks here are also very different from the ordinary chopsticks we use.

From the beginning to the end, it has to go through many processes, including material selection, material drying, sizing, polishing, etc., which must also go through high temperature, high pressure or ultraviolet sterilization.

The college student told us that the reason why he chose this career was not only because he used chopsticks since he was a child, but also because he loved Chinese culture.

Disposable Chopsticks Strip Asian Forests

Festival season in Japan is a sensory delight. Taiko drums bang while fireworks blaze overhead, delighting kimono-clad onlookers. Perhaps most central to the Japanese festival experience, though, is the food: sizzling meat on a stick, octopus balls and globs of at least four kinds of noodles are only a few of the delicacies on offer.

By the end of the night, the detritus from all this collective munching includes thousands of used wooden chopsticks destined for tomorrow’s garbage pickup.

Though the chopstick is the quintessential cutlery choice throughout most of Asia, Japan and China, in particular, seem prone to using the disposable variety. In China, smaller restaurants prefer disposables while larger ones tend to go with plastic. In Japan, disposables are found even at nicer sit-down establishments.

Visit a run-of-the-mill sushi bar in New York or London and you’ll probably find wooden chopsticks at your disposal there, too. But if you’re in the mood for Vietnamese food, you’ll probably be dining with the plastic variety, while Korean restaurants tend to go with metal.

So, what’s the big deal?

Each year, the equivalent of 3.8 million trees go into the manufacture of about 57 billion disposable pairs of chopsticks in China, according to statistics from that nation’s national forest bureau. About 45 percent of disposable chopsticks are made from trees like cottonwood, birch, and spruce, while the remainder is made from bamboo.

Half of the disposables are consumed within China. Of the other half, 77 percent is exported to Japan, 21 percent to South Korea and 2 percent to the United States.

Chopsticks add to a plague of regional deforestation. According to a 2008 United Nations report, 10,800 square miles of Asian forests are disappearing each year, a trend that must be arrested to fight climate change, given the vital role trees play in absorbing carbon dioxide.

Activists argue that the disposable chopstick habit could gradually be phased out on an individual basis. Chopstick sets complete with a simple or decorative case are sold at many stores and are easy to put in a purse, knapsack or briefcase, they note.

In China, organizations like Greenpeace East Asia are trying to raise awareness of the issue. In December, 200 students from 20 Chinese universities collected 82,000 pairs of used disposable chopsticks from Beijing restaurants. With the discarded utensils, they built four trees, each 16 feet high, to create a “disposable forest.”

The project was featured in a busy pedestrian mall in Beijing, and the students encouraged 40,000 passersby to sign a petition rejecting disposable chopsticks. “Imagine thousands of people passing by that area every day,” said Aihong Li, a spokeswoman for Greenpeace in Beijing. “It was quite shocking for people to see these images.”

Some American artists have also drawn attention to the dimensions of the waste. Donna Keiko Ozawa, a San Francisco artist, collected over 170,000 used chopsticks for her continuing waribashi project, a reference to the Japanese word for disposable chopsticks. Her works consist of seemingly haphazard but tightly constructed abstract forms built entirely from used chopsticks.

“Japanese restaurants, in particular, have a tendency to use disposables,” she said. “They weren’t composting or recycling.”

In 2007, China imposed a tax on wooden chopsticks with the goal of helping the environment. After that, Japan — which boasts one of the world’s highest forest coverage rates at 69 percent — simply began relying more on other suppliers like Vietnam, Indonesia, and Russia rather than phasing out disposables.

For a country otherwise obsessed with recycling — a typical Japanese kitchen often devotes half its space to multiple trash bins for meticulously sorting recyclables — the chopstick phenomenon may seem puzzling. Cost isn’t the driver: restaurants investing in reusable chopsticks at $1.17 a pop actually save money in cost-per-use by comparison with disposables.

Restaurant reusables normally have a life span of about 130 meals. Disposables cost about 2 cents in Japan, so the equivalent 130 disposable pairs cost about $2.60.

Of course, some customers may balk at eating with reusables, citing sanitary concerns.

But disposable chopsticks pose risks of their own for consumers and the environment, Greenpeace says. While production standards exist in China, it says, supervision is sometimes nonexistent, especially in small factories. Industrial-grade sulfur, paraffin, hydrogen peroxide, and insect repellent are among the harmful chemicals that Chinese media investigations have exposed during production.

Paraffin is a known carcinogen, and hydrogen peroxide can harm the digestive system. Chopsticks irresponsibly disposed of can contaminate water and soil quality.

While there has been no Japanese legislation to address the issue, a few on-the-ground changes are gaining popularity. Some restaurants now stock plastic chopsticks, although they keep a stash of disposables on hand in case of customers request them.

At the ubiquitous convenience stores throughout Japan, cashiers now ask if customers need chopsticks rather than sticking them into checkout bags by default. Certain restaurants also offer discounts or free tea for people who bring their own utensils.

In China, 2,000 Beijing and Guangzhou restaurants have sworn off wooden chopsticks, and the Web site Fantong reports which restaurants are committed to reusables.

Last year, the Chinese government issued a notice urging restaurants to go green, although Greenpeace said that the notice did not include specific measures for reaching that goal.

“Generally speaking, more and more college students and white-collar workers are bringing their own chopsticks for meals,” Ms. Li of Greenpeace says, “though in the greater sense this is still a big problem.”

This issue may not be on the radar for many American consumers. But as awareness spreads, you may notice people pulling out their own chopsticks when they dine at a noodle joint, or declining disposables when they grab a bento to go.

Japanese chopsticks are the easiest to learn. Korean chopsticks are the most difficult to learn. What about Chinese c...

Chopsticks can be described as the "national quintessence" of China. Also known as "箸", but few people in China have known it, but this has been preserved in Japan. According to historians, the history of using chopsticks in China can be traced back to the Shang Dynasty. It is particularly worth mentioning that Japan and South Korea, which are adjacent to China, have followed the development of Chinese chopsticks and, after long-term development, gradually formed chopsticks that conform to their respective national conditions.

Chopsticks are widely used in Southeast Asia. Due to the influence of ancient Chinese culture, residents of Japan and the Korean peninsula also learned to eat with chopsticks. Eating with chopsticks is a culture. Although today, Japan, Japan, and Korea all have a culture of using chopsticks, due to historical reasons and the influence of local environmental factors, chopsticks are not the same in the three countries.

In Japan, chopsticks are very short, and the chopsticks are very sharp. They use wooden chopsticks.

In China, chopsticks are very long and heavy. Chopsticks are generally woody. Because of their wide area and different places, plastic chopsticks and metal chopsticks are also used.

In Korea, chopsticks are flat and are generally metal chopsticks.

Then why are there such big gaps in chopsticks?

Japanese people like to use chopsticks to hold bowls when they eat, so they don't need long chopsticks. And the Japanese love to eat fish is also related because it is more suitable for picking.

Chinese people usually have traditional seats when they eat. The tables are large and the plates are large. Because the plates are far away, people use long chopsticks.

Korean chopsticks, neither Chinese chopsticks nor Japanese chopsticks. The Korean table is a short table, and the chairman is sitting cross-legged. It can be said that between the two, but because the ingredients are different from the main Korean beans and small dish kimchi, the chopsticks are finer.

Which three kinds of chopsticks are the most difficult for foreigners to use?

Japan: Because Japanese chopsticks are very short, and the wood used to make chopsticks is not very smooth, it is very easy to control Japanese chopsticks for foreigners.

China: Because Chinese chopsticks are longer, it is more difficult for foreigners than Japanese chopsticks.

South Korea: Korean chopsticks are small and heavy and "slippery", so it is the most difficult for foreigners to use.

However, if using Korean chopsticks is easy for a foreigner, then it is absolutely no problem to use Chinese and Japanese chopsticks, so it is hard to use in Korea at a glance. Japan is the simplest, Chinese chopsticks are in the middle, although not the simplest, but China It is the birthplace of chopsticks. It is said that Daxie is the first person in the world to use chopsticks. This is worth mentioning.

After a long history of development, chopsticks have also formed a unique custom.

Chinese people use chopsticks very particularly, there is etiquette, and there are taboos. Parents from a young age educate us not to use chopsticks in our mouths, do not point to others with chopsticks, don't put chopsticks in rice, this is the etiquette on chopsticks.

There are also many folk taboos related to chopsticks. For example, during the meal, two chopsticks of different lengths cannot be placed on the table, resulting in a situation of “three long and two short”. This is very unlucky, meaning "death"; if you use chopsticks to beat the dishes, the folks have the saying that "knocking the bowl and knocking on the chopsticks and asking for a lifetime", meaning "poverty."

South Korea is also a big country with chopsticks. It’s just that the chopsticks went to the peninsula, and the peninsula threw the bamboo and abandoned it, making it all made of metal. No wooden chopsticks and bamboo chopsticks are used. It is said that because the peninsula dishes are known as "red", long-term use of wooden chopsticks or bamboo chopsticks will cause the head of the chopsticks to be reddish and discarded. Another reason is that Koreans I loved the barbecue and found the best metal chopsticks for grilling.

The reason why Korean chopsticks are difficult to use is mainly its shape. Korean chopsticks are not Chinese cylinders, nor are they thick and thin in Japan, but flat cuboids. It is easy to use the chopsticks from your hands when you use it for the first time. To be honest, every time I see the chopsticks used by Koreans, I can't help but think of the word "stick"...

The use of chopsticks, the three countries also have huge differences.

The Chinese have always been mixed with the family, and the relatives have a dish of vegetables to each other, full of deep affection. The Japanese family is the opposite of China. Everyone has their own dining "special chopsticks" and must not be used indiscriminately. They are all fixed foods, and there is no habit of cuddling each other. It was sanitation, but the family was also "sanitary".

The Koreans are very similar to the Chinese on the table. A meal will be eaten with enthusiasm, and the love will be strong, and he will be responsible for his chopsticks.

Why don't China use metal chopsticks like South Korea, which will save wood!

Due to our Chinese eating habits, our usual tableware is chopsticks in normal times, and we will find chopsticks in some of China’s neighboring countries, such as Korea and Japan, through movies or TV series. But they are different from the chopsticks we use in China. For example, Japanese people use pointed chopsticks to better eat sushi and fish fillets, while Koreans use flat chopsticks. And the material is different from ours in China. We usually use wooden chopsticks in China, while Koreans prefer to use metal chopsticks.

We all know that chopsticks have bamboo chopsticks. Of course, there are some wood and chopsticks. Because they consume a lot of wooden chopsticks every year, it means that it takes a lot of trees, so we will prohibit the use of disposable ones. Chopsticks, but at this time some people may ask a question, why do Chinese people do not use metal chopsticks like Koreans? Doesn't this save a lot of wood?

First of all, let's first understand why Koreans use metal chopsticks. This is mainly because South Korea's land area is extremely small, so their resources will be very calm, and metal chopsticks can be used for a long time without using wood. So, it will not pose a certain threat to the triple, and Koreans like to eat kimchi. Everyone knows that kimchi is a kind of pickled food, and it belongs to a kind of cold food, so it is better to use metal chopsticks.

But it is different for us Chinese. We, Chinese people, have a lot of cooking methods, and we have enjoyed eating hot foods since ancient times, and old people often say that eating cold food will make trouble. of. If we use metal chopsticks, then the thermal conductivity of the metal is very strong, so it is easy to cause us to have a burnt mouth, especially if it is hotter than a hot pot if it is more suitable for metal chopsticks.

In fact, now China's chopsticks have basically not used wood but chose to use bamboo chopsticks. Everyone should have a good understanding of bamboo for bamboo, although the growth rate in the past few years is particularly slow, it will grow rapidly after a certain period of time. Moreover, in recent years, China has also paid attention to environmental protection. It not only uses bamboo as chopsticks but also uses bamboo to make planks, bamboo to make beds, even water cups and so on.

Therefore, if we think that the chopsticks used in China are wasting wood, it is a lack of knowledge. And now our country has been vigorously planting trees and changing the environment. I believe that our country will do better in the near future.

New rule! Catering industry does not actively provide disposable chopsticks

When I go to a restaurant for dinner, the waiter does not actively provide disposable chopsticks. Is the service bad?

Not so. Due to the need for environmental protection, disposable items should be reduced in use, and this provision is intended to be written into legal provisions.

On the 23rd, the 15th meeting of the Standing Committee of the 13th National People's Congress was held in Beijing, and the revised draft of the Law on the Prevention and Control of Environmental Pollution by Solid Wastes (hereinafter referred to as the "revised draft") was submitted for the second review.

It is clear that tourism, catering and other industries should gradually implement the non-active provision of disposable items.

A large amount of solid waste encroaching on space and polluting the environment urgently needs the attention of every citizen. The revised draft of the Law on the Prevention and Control of Environmental Pollution Caused by Solid Wastes submitted for consideration this time, in addition to regulating and guiding enterprises, has many provisions that require the active participation of the public.

In response to the draft of the first review, members of the Standing Committee and representatives suggested that the principle of prevention and control of environmental pollution by solid waste be clearly defined as reduction, recycling, harmlessness, and enrichment of relevant content. Therefore, the second draft of the revised draft has added relevant regulations, making it clear that the state encourages and guides to reduce the use of disposable plastic products such as plastic bags, and promotes the application of recyclable, degradable, and replaceable products.

For disposable items such as disposable chopsticks provided in restaurants, the revised draft specifies that tourism, catering and other industries should gradually promote the provision of non-active disposable items. Offices of government agencies, enterprises and institutions shall use environmentally friendly products, equipment, and facilities, and reduce the use of disposable office supplies.

Aiming at the problem of garbage classification, members of the Standing Committee and other members proposed to revise the draft to further improve the domestic garbage classification system. Therefore, the second review draft has added regulations: the classification of domestic waste shall be implemented in accordance with the principles of government promotion, participation of the whole people, urban and rural coordination, measures tailored to local conditions, and ease of implementation; local people's governments at or above the county level shall establish and improve a coordination mechanism for the classification of domestic waste and strengthen the management of domestic waste classification Capacity building; units and individuals that produce domestic waste should fulfill the obligations of domestic waste reduction and classified release according to law, and bear the responsibility of domestic waste producers; agencies, institutions, state-owned enterprises, etc. should play a leading role in the classification of domestic waste, etc.

In addition, the revised draft further improved the government and its related departments' responsibility for the prevention and control of environmental pollution caused by solid waste and added a chapter on "safeguard measures"; further improved legal responsibilities.

Bamboo chopsticks are the best choice for eating. How to use chopsticks to be healthier?

Living standards are getting higher and higher, and people are becoming more and more particular about their diet. Not only do they pursue the color, aroma, and taste of food, but even chopsticks must be carefully selected. At present, there are many kinds of chopsticks on the market, and there are many kinds of chopsticks. How can I choose chopsticks that can be used healthily? What should I pay attention to when using chopsticks?

How to use chopsticks for healthier

When using chopsticks, there must be choices, and in some cases, during our choice of chopsticks, bamboo chopsticks are the first choice and the best choice. It is non-toxic, harmless, environmentally friendly, and the cheapest of all chopsticks. Good quality bamboo chopsticks will not deform when exposed to high temperatures.

Use chopsticks after a period of time. We should use chopsticks every 3 months or replace them every six months. Do n’t think that the chopsticks can be washed and the bacteria on it Don't underestimate it. After cleaning the tableware every day after meals, do not put chopsticks directly in the cabinet or drawer. Be sure to dry thoroughly before storing it. It is best to store in a ventilated place. Chopstick buckets sold in supermarkets have a sink at the bottom and a lid on it. It must be noted that before the chopsticks are dry, do not cover the lid, but also clean the sink every day, otherwise, it is a sanitary dead corner, it is easy to breed bacteria and moldy hair.

When using chopsticks, some colored chopsticks are best not to use. Painted chopsticks are very beautiful and their shapes have changed a lot, but it is these beautiful chopsticks that I do n’t recommend to use in everyday life. Because of the heavy metals, lead, and organic solvent benzene in paint, there are many unknown hidden dangers to the body and affect health.

Use chopsticks to prevent infection

When eating, people often put a few or a dozen pairs of chopsticks on the same plate to add vegetables. In fact, mixed chopsticks can easily contaminate various bacteria. Studies have found that many germs are transmitted through chopsticks. According to tests, a pair of unclean chopsticks may carry tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of bacteria and viruses. Once people use such chopsticks, they are susceptible to related diseases such as hepatitis, dysentery, typhoid fever, and acute gastroenteritis. When parents use chopsticks to feed their children, or many people at the table use chopsticks to clamp the same dish, these pathogenic microorganisms will spread through the chopsticks, causing cross-infection. This should not be underestimated, the chopsticks at home should be dedicated.

The practice has proved that washed chopsticks are not "clean." After using a pair of chopsticks for a long time, the surface will no longer be smooth, and frequent rubbing will also easily make the chopsticks rough. Many small bacteria and detergents will remain in the small grooves on the chopsticks. In this case, there are many opportunities for the disease. It is recommended to change chopsticks at home once every six months.

New chopsticks should be washed thoroughly

In addition to removing the viruses and bacteria accumulated during production and transportation, the newly purchased chopsticks must also remove certain chemicals left on the packaging. After buying the chopsticks, first, rinse them with water, then rinse with detergent, and finally put them in the pot and boil them for 30 minutes. In addition, there will be some fine thorns on the newly purchased bamboo chopsticks, which must be carefully removed. If the newly purchased chopsticks have a strange smell, you can soak them in water with vinegar for 30 minutes or boil them with tea for 30 minutes. If the trademark on the chopsticks is difficult to remove, you can use a hairdryer to blow the heat so that the trademark can be removed. You can also use medical alcohol, high spirits, and wind oil to remove the trademark, and the effect is very good.

Always clean the chopsticks thoroughly, and try not to rub the whole chopsticks under the tap, so the chopsticks that are cleaned can easily breed bacteria. The correct cleaning method should be to first rinse the surface of the chopsticks with clean water, then use detergent to clean it, and finally put it in a disinfection cupboard to disinfect and dry. If there is no disinfection facility, you can thoroughly clean the body's moisture. Drain and place in the chopstick box.

Why do Koreans like to use "stainless steel chopsticks"? Not just for "environmental protection"

Friends who like to watch Korean dramas or eat Korean food know that Korean tableware is usually made of stainless steel. They are as small as chopsticks and spoons, as large as rice bowls and soup bowls, and they are all made of stainless steel.

For Chinese who are accustomed to using porcelain or wooden tableware, stainless steel tableware looks cold and may even affect appetite. Why do Koreans like to use "stainless steel chopsticks"? Not just for "environmental protection".

As early as the Baekje period (18 BC – 660 AD), the Korean royal family at that time used silver chopsticks to detect whether food contained poisons and because silver was pure, silver elements were sterilized and disinfected to protect the health Function, the habit of using silver metal tableware began to spread from the Korean royal family. Koreans love metal tableware, and their special eating habits and cooking methods are inseparable.

Among our Chinese chopsticks and spoons, chopsticks are used more, but compared to "Tang Kok" Korea, soup is essential for every meal. Like us, Korean spoons are basically made of silver. It is not unusual that Korean chopsticks are also made of silver in order to be paired. Koreans can eat without chopsticks, but the habit of having a spoon must continue.

Although metal chopsticks don't feel as good as wooden chopsticks, Koreans like to eat barbecue and kimchi. These foods are very suitable for grabbing with stainless steel chopsticks. Wooden chopsticks are easy to mold and difficult to clean. Instead, metal chopsticks are less likely to breed bacteria and are easy to clean. Easy to disinfect.

Moreover, the South Korean law stipulates that all business establishments such as restaurants, shops, and supermarkets are prohibited from providing disposable tableware. If the amount of violation tickets is considerable, it is not only environmentally friendly but also has a longer service life than ordinary wooden chopsticks. Koreans who love to barbecue use metal Chopsticks no longer have to worry about eating and eating chopsticks that have burned completely.
