I was thinking...what is worse for the environment the paper/plastic plates which cause trash or running the dishwasher every 2nd day (4person household)?
I was convinced the paper/plastic plates are the bad guys..but i dont know how much water a dishwasher is using...
your opinions on that?

I go for the dishwasher - we run ours typically once a day. And mine has a timer so after we put away evening dishes I set the timer and it runs while we are asleep. I found that its better to do it at that time because most people are not consuming much energy then. Personally I hate paper plates. My MIL uses them for EVERYTHING and it is a bit of a turn off.

I would think the paper plates would be worse, especially if you have an energy efficient dish washer.

Dishwasher is better as long as you do a full load.
