Simple choice: disposable or reusable?

solo br cupsOkay my friends… it’s as simple as this.  We had a choice.

Many people were going to visit our house.  The keg was calling out for a party.  Do you buy disposable cups or reusables? Quick! Make your choice.

It sounds crazy, I know, but I found myself facing this ridiculous question.  What… do… you … do?

I went to the dollar store. I bought cups. I bought reusable cups. I walked away from the disposables… and guess what?  We were just fine.  Everyone followed the rules.  They used the cups. They deposited them back into the kitchen.  They found their way into a (full) dishwasher. They were washed. They were stored for the next gathering. We threw NOTHING away. We won’t need to spend more money next time either. The next time, “we already have cups”.

Success. Yes. No trash. That’s all you need to do.  Wise choices, my friends.  Wise choices.

23 Eco-Friendly Ways To Save Money While You Save The Planet

"Going green" has always been a part of my daily life. It began, as a little girl, when I helped my mom gather the recyclables and deliver them to a recycling center. It continues today, as a mom myself, when I teach my own children those same responsible virtues.

There are so many more facets of going green in the modern day, and the definition of the term reaches far beyond simple recycling. But going green isn't just about installing solar panels on your rooftop... it's about all the little choices that make the biggest difference. From food choices, to cleaning your home, to saving money on your monthly utility bills and consumption; the choices are vast.

However, there is a popular misconception that "going green" will "cost you green." We're inundated with green products, eco-friendly formulas, organics and mountains of options, making it seem that going green is an investment rather than an opportunity.

Well, I'm here to help dispel that myth and actually show you all of the ways you can live green, keep your family healthy, and benefit the environment without sacrificing anything, including your money.

When you make wise choices to gain the most benefit, relieve the burden on the environment, and save money to use elsewhere, everyone wins. You've already taken the first step. You've come here for help to make it happen.

Put these tips into action, and you will soon find that you can "save green" while you "go green"!

  1. Congratulations an “adult” party was had. What i mean is that your party guests acted like responsable adults. I’m a fan of hard cider in a keg myself. And a little trivia: full kegs take upwards of 6 peoples to carry and stand about as tall as a 50 gallon drum. Half and quarter kegs are sold at most supliers. Not even sure full kegs are sold anymore.

    If we all would take a little time out of our ever so busy lives and did a little Waster-Sizing, we would not only be setting examples for young and old, we would also be getting some priceless exercise and assisting Mother Earth, going to the beach, park, lake or just around your neighborhood, lets face it, we are all in this neighborhood together and we “All” should be setting examples by walking the walk, leaving only smiles, education and footprints behind.
    May the force be with us all.

  3. Recently saw some stories on a couple new shows like NBC and The Journal with Joan Lunden that were talking about the importance of industrial recycling. This article get me thinking about, What if big buisness did similar things like kept giant containers for transporting raw materials and reused them, or delivered supllies to vendors in reusable packages. Great article.
