Next time you host an event, rent plates or use recyclables instead of Styrofoam or plastic. Not only will you be reducing your contribution to the waste stream, but using the real stuff will also prove a real treat for guests. (Who doesn't prefer eating with a proper knife and fork?!)

To further reduce your party footprint, consider serving organic foods and using recycled paper or online invitations and RSVPs.
