Forums > Living in Kunming > Disposable chopsticks bad for nature

...that is collectively owned by the cyclists and that refuse to deliver from restaurants that provide throw away chopsticks, and who will not use elevators.
Man, there's GENIUS on this thread today!

(Confession: I think I ate off paper plates last night at the highly-successful Have a Heart fundraiser. However, I walked home afterwards....but then I bought some bananas on the way home and as I had been too thoughtless to carry my own bag, I accepted the plastic bag into which the hawker put the bananas, and I already have way too many plastic bags in my flat...damn!)

@Dazzer: another good idea. But then of course you can stop having food delivered, so that the delivery vehicle is not out there burning petrocarbons, and walk to the nearest noodle shop that does not use throw away chopsticks (take the stairs, it's healthier and you don't waste electric power, run perhaps on coal or forest-destroying people-moving dam sites, in the elevator).
Very difficult to keep clean hands - opportunities for political correctness are inexhaustible, all good - there's no end to tactics of Resistance, although I do think some may be more effective than others.

Misfit: Good point. But note also that the entire ideal of democracy rests on the idea that electrons count up too. 'One' is always outnumbered by 'many', and there is an obvious lesson to be learned from the fact. But electrons are useless unless they are informed - so thanks for the post, dolphin, for what it is worth, and for as far as it goes.
Methinks, however, that there is more to do and to consider, as everything is inextricably, and often irresponsibly, connected to everything else.

(1) No.
(2) As you like.
(4) I seem to be buried in imperfections. Anyway, I rather distrust people who have nothing but principles and imagine life is just a matter of living up to them. People like that can be scary.
Guess I'll go to Hell, ho-hum.

The hotel buffets - I'll continue to talk to you, understanding that I, too, am a great sinner, if you go there.

(1) The organized mass influence on government, both globally and within the country. Large organizations can oppress largely.
(2) Yes.
(3) Depends largely on the way in which wealth is distributed, I think, both globally and within the country.
(4) I can't.

As near as I can remember, they haven't had anything new on their menu in 13 years. Full meal consists of chicken steak, with or without mushroom sauce.
Sandwiches are okay. Service is generally poor, and they seem to be understaffed.

Not quite what you'd call a jumping place, but not bad at all for rather standard US-type meals, not overly expensive, and with a really good salad bar that's cheap, or free with most dinner dishes after 5:30PM. You can get a bottle of beer or even wine if you really want to, but I've never seen anybody do it - maybe that's just to take out. Chinese Christian run, and they hire people with physical disadvantages, who are pleasant and helpful. Frequented by foreign (mostly North American) Christians and Chinese Christians - was started by a Canadian couple associated with Bless China (previously, Project Grace), who are no longer here, but no religious pressure or any of that. Steaks are nothing special, and I avoid the Korean dishes, which I've had a few times but which did not impress me.

As a shop and bakery, it's very good bread at reasonable prices, of various kinds (Y18 for a good multigrain loaf that certainly weighs well over a pound. Other stuff too, like granola and oatmeal that is local, as well as imported things, including American cornflakes and so forth, which some people seem to require.

Great location, nice seating area outside within the temple compound and with plenty of space for gigs, etc., on afternoons. Good steak, good crowds, bbq and buffet both good. .

Large portions, seriously so with the pizza, which is Brooklyn/American style, I guess. Convivial, conversational, good place to drink with good folks on both sides of the bar, especially after about 9PM.
