Holiday celebrations are just around the corner and it’s time to consider your place settings. If you already have perfectly good dishes, don’t throw them out to run and buy the eco-friendly options listed here. Remember, reducing is also eco-friendly. While you may want to start ridding your home of plastics, anything you have that is glass or china is perfectly fine to keep using even as you work toward being more environmentally aware. However, if you’d like to use disposables during your celebration, we’ve got you covered.

Pure Palm Planet Friendly Plates

These plates are fully disposable and compostable. What’s more, they are made from palm leaves that are harvested only after they fall. Plus, they are quite sturdy; they don’t leak or bend when you put the food on them. They aren’t unattractive and can make for a surprising table setting combined with other natural elements.

Fuyit 250 Piece Disposable Dinnerware Set

This is a giant set for a small price. More than likely, almost any family can do Thanksgiving with this one set of dishes. The cutlery and tableware are made from compostable sugarcane. This set looks more like traditional paper plates. They are also microwave and freezer safe, so great for the holiday.

Try Bamboo Placesettings

If you want something new that is also reusable, this eco-friendly bamboo set is for you. They are FDA-approved BBA-free and are easy to clean and reuse. However, you cannot put them in the freezer, and they are not microwave-safe.

Wheat Straw Dinnerware

These come in different colors, are reusable, and are made from eco-friendly natural wheat straw. There are no toxins in these plates, and no one will know it’s not plastic. They are also dishwasher safe. They are light, sturdy, and durable for your Thanksgiving holiday.

Spread Mixed and Matched Items Around

Nothing has to be matchy-matchy for your table decorations, so if you have a mix of dishes, just spread them around to balance out the textures and colors on the table. No one is really going to think much about the dishes once they put the food on them.

The Real Plates That You Already Have

You can also set the table with your real plates, whether they are glass or china. Using your real flatware/silverware and real dishes will be better than buying anything new since nothing needs to be produced for you to use them.


The main thing to remember is that you don’t need to get everything new and everything doesn’t have to match. You can set a beautiful table with unmatching dishes by adding attractive natural decorations such as by bringing some sticks, pinecones, and leaves from outside inside and spreading the different dishes around. Plus, you can feel good about not adding problems to the environment and doing your part to make your carbon footprint smaller.
