As many of us celebrate the Holidays with family and friends, there are sure to be parties and gatherings with lots of food and treats. One way we can reduce waste is to eliminate the need for paper and plastic products that get used once and thrown away. Set out reusable plates, cups and utensils or purchase recycled products that can be recycled again or are biodegradable. If you don't have enough of your own dishes to use and need to buy disposable ones, Preserve makes a great line of products made from recycled materials. They have very sturdy plates and utensils and fantastic cups that you can wash and reuse. And they also come in great bright colors to make your table look festive! You can find them at your local Whole Foods (or if your party is next week, you can order them here). Please reuse whenever possible!
