You should try and stay away from using any disposable serving and dinning ware as much as possible. If you are having too many people coming over for dinner then you can look for green disposable dinner ware. It does exist, just may not be able to find it everywhere. You can also recycle the paper plates and cups, don’t forget.
When using every day dinner ware, you will be thinking about how long it is going to take to clean everything up. Get several of your guests involved in the cleaning up process that way you can still visit and talk, and also get your kitchen clean up. Save you some time later in the day.
