UmiHashi / 海洋箸 is Japanese for Ocean Chopsticks. We turned ocean plastic from around the world into, durable and unique chopsticks. This way you can help clean the ocean by eating sushi in style.

Besides the positive goal of creating these chopsticks, they also look beautiful and unique. This is because all the different colors of plastic particles blend together in the design process. It makes the chopsticks beautiful, both from the inside ánd outside!

According to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050. All of this will ultimately lead to the scenario that oceans will become dead and filled with plastic, meaning that we can’t enjoy the taste of sushi anymore…
That’s why we created UmiHashi, to help reduce ocean plastic by enjoying sushi!
