    No Need

    I usually eat raw veggies, cheeses, and sandwiches the most. I just don't see the ned to mess up a plate that I have to wash so I use a paper plate or a paper towel instead.

    Paper Plates Have Saved My Life! Lol

    I couldnt imagine my life without paper plates. I cant imagine having to wash dishes everyday without a dishwasher might I add! And kudos to Sams Club and Bjs for their bulk size paper plates!

    It's Economics

    I look at the fact that trees already lost their lives fr those plates and we pay a lot monthly for water so...it's a money thing too. Sadly that is what big oil did, they replaced billions of gallons of oil deep in the ground with water, I'm just sayin :(

    I Hate Doing Dishes

    They are a lifesaver when I am having parties with lots of people over it saves a lot of time and energy.Same with plastic cutlery they are reusable but I like how you don't have to wash them if you are gonna discard them afterwards.

    So Handy

    I use paper plates all the time. They give me a reason not to do dishes. I can put whatever I want on them and just toss in the trash when the family is done eating. No mess, No fuss. My kinda of life.

    I've had so many one night stands with paper plates all over the world, it's not even funny.

    Paper plates are better then dishes.

    You don't have to wash them. Or have one of your friends sneak a plate in your sink and don't wash it.

    i work in a childcare centre and the amount of enjoyment the children can get outta a paper plate is amazing. we spend 2 whole weeks doing art and crafts from paper plates and we had more peace and quiet and fun out of them we have run out of ideas now of what to make out of more...
