51. Not Using Disposable Cups, Plates, etc.
We rarely use disposable cups, plates, etc. We have had friends who use paper plates and cups for every meal, the cost of this is much more than the cost of washing actual dishes. We do use plastic spoons, forks and knives; however, we wash them and reuse them (we have found that for packing lunches plastic-ware is less likely to be missed if identically thrown away by a kid).
