Use REUSABLE PLATES and UTENSILS instead of DISPOSABLE PLASTIC ONES.
If you still want disposable cups and plates for a party, Opt for the PAPER plates and cups(get the sturdier ones though!). These will eventually biodegrade.
NEVER buy STYROFOAM PLATES OR CUPS!!!
(STYROFOAM DOES NOT BIODEGRADE IN THE ENVIRONMENT!!!!!)
