While my family screams at the TV screen during the Superbowl, and I pile brats, dips and all things football foodish onto our plates, I thought now would be a great time to let you know that you also have the chance to take a complete break from washing dishes for awhile by winning these great Hefty Basics paper plates.

Typically, I use glass plates. Even though I do not consider myself a “green” blogger by any means, there’s something that feels great about saving money, reusing, and not filling our landfills unnecessarily, but with our schedule and hosting so many teen boys, sometimes days necessitate disposable table wear. So when I heard about Hefty’s new line of basic biodegradable tablewear, I was thrilled.

This line of paper plates are biodegradable in-home composting and free of inks, dyes or coatings.  Hefty® Basics™ paper plates are stronger than everyday plates at a value price, and provide a great choice for people interested in an environmental option. I keep a continuous compost pile running, and it’s wonderful to know I can just throw these right in with the rest of the veggie peels.
Also, In the spirit of environmentalism, Hefty® Basics™ has partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation™ on a quest to plant 10,000 trees, one for every ten new “Like”s on Facebook and they’d greatly appreciate your support by spreading the word!
I’m giving two Balancing Beauty and Bedlam readers a Hefty Basics Kit that includes two packs of  Basics disposable plates, five coupons for free product, and a note printed on seed paper with soy ink that can be planted to grow wildflowers!
For me, the idea of not having to wash dishes and put them away for a few evenings is even better. 🙂
