A housewares business making furniture and decor using recycled chopsticks is launching in Australia in 2022.
ChopValue has reused 47 million chopsticks since its creation in 2016 and has just announced its first micro-factory in the southern hemisphere.
The company collects chopsticks from restaurants, schools, universities, hotels and offices that would otherwise have ended up in landfills and transforms the materials into furniture, interior design and various office solutions for a second life.

ChopValue has reused 47 million chopsticks since its creation in 2016
âOur team has grown tremendously in our first year of franchise despite COVID, with 38 micro-factories in development around the world,â said Felix BÃ¶ck, Founder and CEO of ChopValue.
âI think this is a positive transformation for the climate rather than just recycling,â said BÃ¶ck. âMost resources are underutilized, there is no wasteâ.
BÃ¶ck estimated that ChopValue collects 350,000 baguettes per week in every city where they are located.
ChopValue website has a wide range of products including workstations and wall decorations
The ChopValue website has a wide range of products whose specifications include the number of chopsticks that were recycled to create them, like this workstation that used 10,854 chopsticks and this wall decor set that was created from of 3000 baguettes.
The furniture and design brand will be the first of its kind in Australia, as no group currently measures or recycles used chopsticks in the country.
âWe look forward to the huge potential we see for urban harvesting in Australia to rethink resource efficiency,â he continued. âWe want to make the circular economy the new normal. ”
