My top dining tip for zero waste is to know how many people you can really sit at your dining table. I know it sounds weird, but if you know how many people you can sit at your dining table then you can have just enough flatware and dinnerware to sit people and have a dinner party. Now if you’re going to have more than the amount of people that you can sit at your dinner table, then you can make finger foods, so that you’re not creating a need for disposable plates, disposable flatware. In my home, for example, I have a large amount of the same type of water glasses that we can use for not only water, but juice or wine, so that when I have one of those buffet parties, we can just use these instead of using throw aways.
