If you’re throwing a party for the Super Bowl—or any other occasion—don’t use ­disposable plates and utensils just because they seem simpler. Regular dishes are just as fast to assemble, and you can always enlist post-game volunteers to do dishes. Check our organizing list for a no-waste shindig.

Plates, cups, bowls

Glass, pottery, and wood are reusable and easily washed, and won’t clog the landfills for the next 100 years. If you must buy disposable cups or plates, purchase post-consumer recycled paper rather than Styrofoam.

Utensils 

Forego the toxic plastics and stick with stainless steel.
