We're human and sometime we're suckers for packaging and colors.
Such was the case a few nights ago when we were in the checkout line at REI. We'd gone for a couple water bottles and we walked out with a couple water bottles and a couple sporks.
Well, we suppose we could pack a fork, knife, and spoon to work with our lunches; but, the fact of the matter is, we were forgetting to more often than not. Which meant we ended up using disposable utensils in the office. Not cool.
So, we thought these bright colored Sporks ($3.99 by Joachim Nordwall for Light My Fire) would inspire us to take our own utensils -- make that utensil -- every day.
Do we suck for buying something because it's brightly colored and sort of cool looking? Or is it OK because it will hopefully inspire a green habit? Feel free to be harsh -- we've got thick skin.
