Today, the "Trash Boy" in my home gave a lively discourse on why we should use regular, washable plates, and not paper plates. He explained that if we used regular plates, there would be less trash in our landfills.
Dishwasher Lady rebutted that the amount of water used to wash a dish - in a state that was currently in a state of drought - would be was wasteful, and further, the water would require gas to heat it for dish washing purposes.
My, my...what an environmentally conscious household I live in!
In reality, my son doesn't wanna take out the trash, and I don't wanna do the dishes!
