Picnic season demands disposable plates - it's hard to find a way around this. Recycline offers a greener way to manage backyard picnics and grill-outs with their Preserve Plateware.
The plates are made from recycled Stoneyfield Farm yogurt containers, and they can be recycled again in communities that accept #5 plastic. Plus they are durable enough for multiple uses and even for the dishwasher.
These can be found in 10" dinner plates and 7" salad plates. $4.75-$7.50 for a pack of 8 at Greenfeet.
