cutlery rental in India, rent tableware, eco friendly disposable plates
For your next part, don't go for disposable cutlery. These initiatives let you rent cutlery and save on plastic waste.

Parties at home are fun. But the load of cleaning party dishes compels us to shift to disposable cutlery. And the sad part is, these disposable cutleries might take away the load from you, but is a forever burden on the planet.

You can continue organising parties, but just don’t go for disposable cutlery. As to deal with your woes, there are several initiatives that rent cutlery. And yes, no washing or cleaning; they themselves will deal with this.

Initiatives that let you rent cutlery

These initiatives are trying their best to prevent plastic waste from accumulating in landfills. But for a country like India, we need many such efforts to make a major impact.

If your residential area has not been covered by these initiatives, then also you can have an eco-friendly party. Instead of cutlery rental, you can go for compostable, eco-friendly tableware.

And yes, don’t forget to donate the excess food. See this list for organisations helping to make your food reach to the ones in need.
