Do you save plasticwear?

When you get take out and they give you plastic silverwear do you reuse it or throw it away? I wash and reuse ours til they break and I just wondered what other people do.

  • If I get them, I don't use them right away, we'll use regular silver wear. But I save them for the kid's lunches. I like the spoons especially because I often send yogurt.

  • We have utensils at home and rarely get takeout, we eat chinese takeout with our own chopsticks and other than that only order pizza) Reusing the utensils is something we never do, because there's no point if you use your own stock. I even send my husband with a real spoon orfork in his lunch and he just has to bring it back with the tupperware to be washed.

  • I toss it, but I usually tell them I don't need any when I pick up the food anyway

  • Well, we wash it and reuse it. We burn our trash & it doesn't burn all that well plus when we have huge family get togethers anywhere I always have plastic to use. While it might not be the best for the earth to burn our trash it certainly isn't the best to toss plastic silverware into the trash either. We recycle everything we can so it doesn't go into the landfill anyway and then when the barrel is full we dump it into our garden.
