Re: [GreenYes] The 'best" single service cups, plates and utensils

This question is starting to sound like the proverbial "paper or plastic" at the grocery store.  IMHO, the "right" answer is for the church to get a dishwasher.  Perhaps you could help the church do a lifecycle analysis of the relative costs of on-going use of disposables vs. a dishwasher.  Maybe there are grant funds available (waste reduction, pollution prevention, etc.) to help with the initial purchase.

I have been asked by a local church for a recommendation on what are the
'best' types of single service cups, plates and utensils to use for serving
meals in their facility. They serve meals for a variety of purposes, ranging
from funerals to meetings of youth groups. They don't have a dishwasher and
local regulations on minimum temperatures for washing dishes in a public
setting make washing dishes by hand unworkable.  

Any recommendations would be most appreciated.
