  • Decorate with items that can be reused.
  • Set up tables with reusable tablecloths or place mats.
  • Use cloth napkins, durable plates, and glassware or encourage your coworkers to bring their own.
  • Have cloth dish towels on hand to clean up spills instead of paper towels. 
  • Avoid food and beverages packaged in single servings.
