Do Just One Thing
The next time there's a big gathering or you're invited to a potluck party (and maybe you're not the best cook), offer to bring reusable dishes, cups and utensils. Bring them in durable bins and let everyone go waste-free for the fete. When the party's over, load the dirty dishes and utensils into the bins and run them through the dishwasher once you get home. You'll be accomplishing two wonderful things: helping the environment by cutting back on waste, and not leaving the host with the burden of washing dishes or throwing away trash.
