There are days where I’m in such a rush that I just do not have time to do everything that needs to be done in a 24 hour period. So what can I pass over that won’t be too much of a disruption? Washing the dishes, of course! However, the thought of all those used paper plates in the trash has never really sat right with me. It just seems like such a waste.

Thankfully, Hefty has recently introduced a new line of Hefty Basics paper plates that are biodegradable in-home composting and free of inks, dyes or coatings.  Hefty Basics paper plates are stronger than everyday plates at a value price, and provide a great choice for people interested in an environmental option.

We had the opportunity to try out the Hefty Basics paper plates for our selves and found them to be very strong. My husband is a big eater and his plate never caved in. I also liked that I could put them into the microwave and they came out just as durable as when they went in.

In addition to manufacturing “green” paper plates, Hefty Basics has partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation on a quest to plant 10,000 trees, one for every ten new “Like”s on Facebook. How cool is that? Just stop by the Hefty Basics Facebook page and you can help plant a much needed tree!

WIN IT!

    I’d like to win because I like the idea of an eco-friendly paper plate – it will cut down on the garbage in the land fills & will provide organic matter when composted.
    Thanks for the giveaway!
