The Spork XM – Stand Up for the Planet as You Sit Down for Lunch

Light My Fire, distributed by Industrial Revolution (,introduces a new, longer Spork.

Redmond, Wash. – When a product is so well designed that it can’t be improved, what is a company to do? Make it bigger. Introducing the new, larger Spork XM, by Light My Fire.

A finely crafted tool of polycarbonate material, the Spork XM combines a spoon, fork and a safe, serrated knife-like edge. The three necessary utensils combine in one sleek, half-ounce package. The XM differs from the original Spork, only by its length, a full three centimeters longer. Durable and dishwasher-safe, the Spork XM is built to last.

The inspiration for the longer Spork came from backpackers and campers who eat directly from their dehydrated meal bags. Just because an activity may be dirty, certainly doesn’t mean it should be uncivilized. The Spork XM is long enough to eat directly from a backpacking meal bag without dragging your knuckles in your food, but small enough to easily keep in your daily briefcase or backpack.

Coming in two fashionable colors, orange and green, the Spork XM is the must-have accessory for: the outdoor-oriented, city dwellers, school children and anyone who ever dines outside the home. The Spork XM is also a silent environmental crusader. Millions of disposable, plastic utensils are thrown into our landfills and waterways every day. By carrying the re-usable Spork XM, you can minimize the use of disposable utensils. Stand up for the planet as you sit down to lunch.
