The idea of disposable, single-use cups, plates, and cutlery has been denounced by environmentalists and green enthusiasts for years. As the green movement becomes more than a passing trend and increases in prevalence throughout our daily lives, many manufacturers of clear plastic tableware are offering new products and features that make it better for the environment. In addition, taking simple steps to reuse and recycle can yield greener results while saving you money. Sound too good to be true? Think again! Whether you're throwing a birthday party or just serving the family your weekly Sunday dinner, here are three simple ways to make disposable clear tableware more environmentally friendly.
The designs of kitchen tableware are important as this is the first thing that is noticed by your eyes. The design should not only be pleasant looking, but they must also be a classic so as to make sure that you do not get tired of it easily. Most are already dishwasher safe so that there is no need to worry about the fading of the designs. Other items (usually hand-painted ones) do not have protective coating so that their designs could wear as you wash them. You will know if the kitchen tableware is coated or not if you can feel the slightly raised design on the surface.
Recycle Approved Products - Before you purchase clear tableware, check if it can be recycled. If food can easily be cleaned from the product and if it has a recycling symbol (often located on the bottom of the product), it generally can be recycled through local county or municipality-sanctioned recycling programs. Most PET products can be recycled since they were made initially with recycled products.
