    I would change #5 to "in the processing" or "in the making/manufacture of" disposable chopsticks.

    Re: sanitary and safe

    That's exactly what Rover suggested in post #3. It's what I would use too.

    Matthew Wai, I have reinstated the contents of post #7 which you had deleted. Once people have responded to a post, please don't edit or delete it. It makes subsequent responses look like nonsense.
