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 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 :(
After looking around my (mostly) clean house this morning - I realized that it's the paper plates I served dinner and dessert on last night that let me wake able to make breakfast in a clean kitchen this morning
9 people over last night for swiss steak, mashed potatoes...
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.
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...
