Japanese bra aims to give waste the chop

TOKYO, Nov 7, 2007 (AFP) - Japanese women with environmental concerns close to their hearts may one day be able to wear a bra unveiled Wednesday, November 7th that can be used to carry their own personal chopsticks to cut down on waste.

Women's underwear maker Triumph Japan showcased a bra with cups designed to look like a pair of rice and miso soup bowls and side pouches to hold compact chopsticks.

The "My Hashi" or "My Chopsticks" bra was designed to promote environmentally friendly measures to reduce the use of disposable chopsticks.

The company said it responded to the growing trend of Japanese who carry their own personal chopsticks in their bags so that they would not have to use disposal ones provided in restaurants or with lunch boxes.

And the "Chopstick" bra has benefits beyond protecting the planet -- the chopsticks encased in both sides of the bra will push up breasts and "gently accentuate cleavage," the company said.

For now, however, there are no plans to put the bra on sale.
