4. Use Reusables
Paper plates and plastic cups are convenient, but they’re also hard on the planet. Instead, treat your guests to reusable dishware at your party. You can make cleanup easy by setting up a designated place that they can deposit their dirty cups and plates.
The same thing goes for napkins. Set out cloth napkins at the buffet table and put a sign on a basket so folks know where dirties should go. Then, you can just dump the contents into the wash when the party’s over. Easy peasy!
