I lie here,
forever. I am in excellent
company: they are my own kind, with slightly
different timelines of immortality. More of us are sprouted and discarded each day.
We are The Everlasting, we shall populate faster than humanity and bury those that created us and used us so brazenly.
THE FIB is a type of poetry that follows the Fibonacci series i.e 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21…It is an infinite series and the next number in the series in the sum of the two preceding numbers.
Inspiration/Cause for the day: Edible Cutlery
I have used this type of poetry to portray that the number of use-and-throw items that are increasing continually(probably exponentially than following the Fibonacci series which many objects in nature follow). One use items range from plastic cutlery, packaging to diapers, menstruation pads and more. These end up in landfills and take a long time to decompose, if ever.
DID YOU KNOW?
Oh! But, how can I leave you on this dismal note? I present to you, Edible Cutlery! Now you can eat your food with your spoon and then eat up your spoon too! Wow! Why didn’t anyone think about this before? Narayana Peesapathy created edible cutlery and now is the founder of a company called BAKEYS which makes it in 3 different flavours.
Yeah, yeah, I know, there is that alternative that all the people in this world will carry their own cutlery wherever they go to eat, for the sake of this planet’s sustainability. But, until that day, this is a damn good solution.
Here is a super short video explaining the product by the inventor itself.
For each letter this April, I shall be presenting a poem inspired by ‘something’ that is making our world a little bit kinder, a little bit greener. The ‘something’ is a mix of people, movements, thoughts, or organizations who are having a positive influence on the world around us.
