Community Reusables

Planning an event? Be good stewards of the planet with our community reusables service.

Plates for the People

Community Reusables

Flexible. Affordable. Negotiable.

Hire us to provide full-service support for your event with setup and dishwashing services; rent our reusables for a nominal fee and return them clean; or make an arrangement somewhere in between. We'll work with you to find the best option for your budget and needs. 


Perfect for casual gatherings.


​Our stainless steel reusables may not be fancy but they get the job done. Lightweight and durable, they make it easy to ditch single-use plastics and other disposables.

Plates for the People Pricing
