Choose an Eco-Friendly Option - These days, consumers have a much greater assortment of clear tableware and cutlery to choose from, including a bevy of green alternatives. Many of these products are made using sustainable practices that are better for the planet and are comprised of more eco-friendly materials that can be recycled more easily than traditional plastic or even paper tableware. Renewable plastics, such as bioplastics, are made from renewable resources and are a cost-effective and ecologically sound alternative to petroleum-based tableware products. Other clear tableware products are made from PET, or post-consumer recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate. The "PET" or "PETE" acronym on plastic products (including tableware) simply indicates it was made from recycled materials.
Porcelain can be extremely delicate and fragile but equally beautiful and refined. Porcelain is typically less robust than other hardier materials and in many instances is one of the expensive of the four materials used in the manufacture of tableware. In most homes they are kept for special occasions. Bone china, although regularly confused with porcelain due to the large similarities between the two is fundamentally different. Bone china items are usually more expensive than their porcelain equivalents and in many cases are sturdier due to the use of bone ash in the construction process.
Recently, more formal tableware in the plastic variety has come into fashion. Plastic party plates are the latest wedding fashion, bringing class and elegance to a wedding meal without the usual accompanying worry of cleanup. Many of these party plates feature attractive designs and convincing texture; party guests will be shocked to discover that the plates off of which they are eating are made of plastic rather than porcelain or china. Plastic cutlery is also available for purchase, and some of those pieces are difficult to distinguish from real silverware. Plastic tableware is an attractive and economically feasible alternative to breakable dishes that will have to be washed after the wedding.
