We were shocked when we learned that 100 acres of forests are cut down in China every day to make 45 billion pairs of disposable wooden chopsticks. But rather than give up our beloved General Tso's Chicken, dim sum and sushi, we decided to join the Bring Your Own Chopsticks (BYOC) movement.

So, this year, since we hate to dine alone, we're planning on stuffing some stockings with Yamazaki Stainless Steel My Chopsticks. Dishwasher safe, each pair comes in its own travel case -- which makes them harder to lose or leave on the table when you're done eating.

Available at Bambeco for $5.
