This Green Earth - June 4, 2019 Nicholas Markels

Nell and Chris spoke with Nicholas Markels, a recent Park City High School graduate and winner of the Edison Award for his bio-degradable multi-function plastic spoon, fork, knife utensil called a Sporknife. Nick created and submitted 3-D images, engineering designs, and a photograph of the prototype he had built.
By designing a single, pull apart plastic utensil made from corn-based plastic, Nick hopes to entice businesses to choose his product for its cost effectiveness and environmental benefits.
