Tailgate Toys: Reusable Plates

Reusable melamine dinnerware is a definitely one way to elevate your tailgate. It's light weight, break resistant and the colorful patterns are festive. These sets can be used for any outdoor dining. Melamine is a great alternative to disposable paper and plastic. Most tailgaters prefer an easy cleanup but reusable cups and plates are a lot better for the environment.

Additionally some college campuses have instituted their own programs and are encouraging a "greener tailgate", including Notre Dame and Florida
