In the past we have always been reusable everything. We use our water bottles everywhere we go, and hardly ever use sposie anything. (although I do keep paper towels around for really icky stuff like cat barf ) Otherwise at home we use cheap washcloths as napkins. We even do cloth diapers and cloth wipes! The only time I like sposie stuff is family get togethers so I can focus on time together and not the mess. So with that said- We are planning on keeping with no sposie stuff, and NEVER EVER styrofoam anything!!
