Dun think you can get it easily now...
Vendors are only allowed to sell old stocks that came in before the new ruling.

Please please do not buy ivory.
Because of consumer's demand, poachers has killed and slaughter many elephants for its tusk.

Baby elephants are left to die of starvation.
Ivory chopsticks are made with elephant tusks.

Hope you reconsider. Image

How do you tell if a pair of white chopsticks is actually made of ivory or synthetic material?

Anyone can share?

The colour of my ivory chopsticks turn into darker and nicer colour as you use them...just like jade bangle.

However the colour (brown) looks like my brown wooden chopstick ....which is why I threw them away by mistake :faint: :cry:
