Eco-Friendly Dinnerware Choices

The gorgeous holiday feast has been planned, but what will you serve your meal on? The holidays are a great time for families and friends to come together and enjoy conversation and good times and your dinnerware can actually spark some great conversations about being eco-conscious.

Here are some great eco-friendly dinnerware choices for those who are avid environmentalists or those just venturing into the world of green living.

1. Traditional Place Setting

There’s something so elegant about a traditional place setting, especially one with familial significance. Having Grandma’s China grace the holiday table brings an element of comfort that disposable ware will never acquire. The one question becomes how to clean the dishes. If you have an older dishwasher than hand washing is the way to go. Enlist the help of guests and you’ll make memories while cleaning up after the big meal. If you have children than your little helper can earn a piece of holiday dessert. Newer dishwashers actually use less water and soap so the the electricity is the only thing you are looking at. To spend time with loved ones, we can let it slide especially after keeping disposable ware off the table.
