Reuse Clear Tableware - A simple way to reduce your carbon footprint when it comes to disposable tableware is to simply reuse it! Most clear tableware products can be thoroughly sanitized by putting it in the dishwasher (just don't use the hottest cycle) or hand washing using soap and water. While its final destination may inevitably be a landfill, clear tableware can have multiple life cycles instead of just one. This can also save you a significant amount of money since you won't have to purchase new disposable tableware every time you throw a party or have an event.
