Green Friday a little late- Paper plates be gone!!!!!!

Sorry this is late, but I am packing to leave on vacation for a week and its taking its toll.  Enough excuses, right?  Sooooooooo, tis the season for picnics.  I am challenging everyone for the rest of the summer to do away with paper plates.  Can you imagine if everyone did this, even just for a season, how it would impact waste?  You can go to the dollar store and purchase plastic, reusable plates.  Spend 10-15 dollars and you have plenty for most gatherings.  If you get your close friends to do this, you can borrow if you have a bigger party.

Think about it!  When you go to a picnic you sometimes get a plate for appetizers, a plate for dinner, and another plate for desert.  That is three plates per person.  Rather ridiculous if you ask me.  So go purchase some cute and trendy reusable plates to serve up some great summer picnic food on.

    We have actually been without paper plates for almost a year now. Brad’s not such a big fan…since he does the dishes, but I think it’s kinda nice.

    WE have never really used paper plates. So I guess I have been green for a while and didn’t even know it 🙂

    We use cloth napkins regularly, but not for parties. We still resort to the cute, festive/holiday themed (that’s the operative word with me, right?) napkins and paper plates. Just think of all the water I am saving by not washing all those dishes and just tossing the paper plates instead? No? OK then. You’re right.
