From the website, 200 billion toothpicks are used every year in China alone. China’s population is 1.3 billion, and if the world is 7 billion, then the estimated amount of toothpicks for the world would be over 1000 billion or 1 trillion toothpicks every year.
Toothpicks are generally made from wood, bamboo, plastic or metal. I would assume most of them come from wood and 1 trillion toothpicks, despite the fact that toothpicks are tiny, must amount to many trees. Anyone know how many?
Note, this is just the number of toothpicks used. I would assume most throw them out, but who knows.
