Trash the Guilt Not the Plate with Hefty Basics (Giveaway too!)

Sunday, January 16, 2011

How many times have you wished you had paper plates on hand so that you didn't have to do dishes later?

I know it happens to me.... A LOT!
Of course, then you feel guilty because you're creating more trash for the already-full landfills; more stuff that's harmful to the enviroment.

Well trash the guilt, because there's a new paper plate in town - Hefty® Basics Biodegradable Paper Plates.

Free of inks, dyes, or coatings, Hefty Basics are about the same price as other name brand paper plates BUT you can toss these into your composite bin instead.

How cool is that?

When I was offered a sample of the Hefty Basics, I was excited.  Green product, no dishes for a few meals - can you blame me?  But when I learned the enviromental friendliness of Hefty's newest product, I was estatic!

We've been using these "paper" plates for a few days now and love them.  Not only are they super strong and large enough to easily accomodate standard meal sizes, but we're not filling up the trash after eating - instead we're adding to our composite for Spring planting!

Does Hefty Basics sound like something you'd like to try?  Keep reading to find out how you can do it for free!
