I don't like wooden chopsticks anyways, the way i hold chopsticks makes it hard for me to grap food with. Im surprise that China has taken initiative to save the enivonment, cause I thought profit always comes first for them. It would affect the parts of the world, just the parts where they are importing wooden chopsticks from China. Maybe other countries will follow i dunno, still too early to speculate anything. I think this merely a indirect assault towards the Japanese from China, something like a poke in the eye.
