Paper plates are useful and all, but they are also wasteful; that's why I'm really digging the 'I'm Not a Paper Plate' set. Deceit may not be a good trait, but in this case I'll turn the other cheek considering that it does more good than harm.
Accompanying the 'I'm Not a Paper Plate' set is the 'I'm Not a Plastic Cup' collection. Cute, quirky and full of character, you don't have to be eco-conscious to want these dishes. Sold for under $20 for a set of four, they're worth it.
