L1 - Company Party Recyclables

Anything washable can be stored for future events and does not need to go to a landfill. Washing disposable or reusable tableware does take a conscious decision, this is against the old ways, where at the end of a party throwing plates, cutlery and cups was common practice. Those ended up in big plastic bags, together with food scraps into a bin. Some implementations do require a little effort, which is contrary to old habits but changing behaviors is the point of becoming environmentally conscious. To give you an idea of how every little action counts, refer to this example below. 


Example: With 12 Kg mixed resource 100 disposable plastic plates including cups and cutlery. Compared with washable non-breakable tableware.
