Use the good china. Use washable dishware rather than having disposable plates and utensils that will go to a landfill.
Be plastic free. Ask your caterer and bartender not to use any single-use plastics like straws, single-serve creamers for coffee, bottled water or plastic cups. Avoid plastic-wrapped party favors, too.
Reuse. If disposable plastic cups are unavoidable, leave out a couple permanent markers and a sign requesting guests to write their name on their cups so they can reuse them throughout the reception.
Recycle. Check with your venue and make sure they have recycling receptacles for any aluminum or glass containers.
