Share food with a loved one with Heart Part, a cleverly designed eating utensil that opens up into two pieces combining fork, knife and scoop. Recently spotted at the NY International Gift Fair by our friend Alissia Melka-Teichroew of byAMT design studio, the Heart Part appeals to both food and design nerds with its smart use of form and space.

As possibly the perfect—or at least the cutest—alternative to wasteful plastic cutlery, the Heart Part is made entirely of biodegradable polystyrene, and the dishwasher-friendly parts use 66% less plastic than regular cutlery. Besides minimizing the environmental impact of the everyday toss-away—an estimated 40 billion pieces of plastic are dumped in the world's landfills each year—creator Fatima Fazal makes a social gesture by donating nine percent of profits to charity.

Heart Part comes in five colors including fluorescent green and orange, rose, teal and black, and comes in packs of 10. To snag one for your next picnic or cheese party, head online to iHeart This or The Future Perfect where they sell for just $10 a set.
