Hefty Basics Paper Plates Review + {Giveaway – Ends 3/7} (CLOSED)

Love the convenience of disposable plates, but hate the waste? I know that’s who I feel. I have to hand wash our dishes each and every day. Let me tell you, that gets old after a while. Some days I just want to forget all the dishes and use disposable plates all the time. But, I know that can be really wasteful, so I refrain and stick my hands back into the suds.

Hefty, who is already well known for their disposable products, is now giving us better options. Enter the Hefty Basics Paper Plates. These are a sturdy, disposable plate that is better for the environment. The price is still great, but now the plates are biodegradable in-home composting and free of inks, dyes and coatings.

Hefty sent me the new Hefty Basics Paper Plates in both their sizes. The have a large dinner plate that is 10-1/4” and the other a bit smaller at 8-5/8”. We used the 45 pack of 8-5/8” plates for our Super Bowl party. We ordered pizza for our guests and they brought along desserts and snacks. The plates held up really went for our food. And the clean up was a snap. Their natural brown color lends them to any theme, which is nice.

I can’t wait until spring, so we can try putting the plates in our compost pile. I was excited when I saw they are great for that. We’ll put them in with our other compost and see what happens. Not only do I not have to wash them when we’re done, but they don’t even have to take up room in my garbage can. I think that’s wonderful!

Right now when you “like” Hefty Basics on Facebook, you are helping to plant tress. They have partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation to plant 10,000 trees across the US. For every 10 “like”s they get, they will plant a tree. So, help them out and become a Hefty fan on Facebook now.

Buy It:  Hefty Basics Paper Plates are available in stores now.

Win It:  I have a coupon for a free pack of Hefty Basics Paper Plates for one lucky reader.

I like the idea of a more earth friendly paper plate. We do use paper plates for parties because we don't have enough regular dishes.
