In case you missed National No Housework Day in April, here’s another opportunity to skip out on chores: May 18th is National No Dirty Dishes Day. The day was created to be a break from the normal routine of constantly using and washing dishes, so you really have two options for how you celebrate: eat out or use disposable plates, cups, and silverware.
Skipping a day of doing the dishes actually, conserves four to six gallons of water and up to 1.59 kWh of energy if you typically use a dishwasher. If you really want to be eco- friendly, use Chinet® Classic White™ paper products—our paper plates are compostable and made from 100% pre-consumer recycled goods, so there’s no waste involved. Aside from the opportunity to be eco-friendly, No Dirty Dishes Day is about taking a break and relaxing, so live it up. Schedule a fun outing with friends for brunch or lunch and serve dinner at home on disposable tableware. Our to-do lists are never-ending, so it’s important to take a step back from time to time and focus on what really matters—getting together with family and friends. That’s how we plan to celebrate National No Dirty Dishes Day. How about you?
We’re inviting you to share how you celebrate these wacky, unconventional holidays. Join the conversation and share inspiration with #MyChinetParty.
