Disposable tableware is a wonderful thing. It allows you to quickly and easily clean up after meals, whether it’s for a holiday get together or Monday night dinner. It’s even recyclable! You may not know this, but Dixie is the disposable tableware expert! For over 90 years, the Dixie company has been helping make life easier for families across America – like mine!
Life’s Easier with Dixie Disposable Tableware
Dixie is a name that’s been known and trusted for over 90 years. 90 years! In that time, Dixie has continued to bring us new and innovative disposable tableware products to make our lives easier. They have a complete line of paper and plastic products including plates, bowls, cups, cup dispensers, serving platters, and dining utensils. They’re all recyclable, so we can feel good about saving ourselves some precious time after dinners or get togethers. We save time, and we help save the environment. Everybody wins! With Dixie disposable tableware products, we can spend more time with our families and less time doing cleanup…because really, who likes to clean up?
Speaking of spending more time with our families, Dixie wants US to go dark for dinner. On Sunday, June 14, Dixie is launching their #DarkForDinner campaign, which focuses on the importance of family time around the dinner table. How many times have your kids – or you, for that matter – checked an alert on your phone in the middle of dinner. I know I’ve been guilty of it more than once…try ALL OF THE TIME! That’s why Dixie wants us to put away our electronic devices and focus on our families for at least one night.
#DarkforDinner with Dixie Disposable Tableware
This Sunday, I’ll be bringing out my Dixie disposable tableware and putting away my cell phone, laptop and tablet and so will Angeline! We’ve made the pledge to go #DarkForDinner, and I’m excited about it! Now that Angeline is almost 18 and has her own car, she’s on the go all the time, and it can feel like we’re two ships passing in the night. Having a nice sit down dinner without electronics and using disposable tableware means more time for us to connect without distractions and without cleanup. We have so much going on in our lives right now that it’s more important than ever for us to sit down and concentrate on each other and really talk. No emails, no texting, no Instagram or Snapchat: just us talking about our lives and what really matters…family.
I think that this campaign from Dixie is exciting, don’t you? Although my daughter and I will always be close, this world of electronic communication and mile-a-minute mindset sometimes make me feel like we’re not as close as we could be. By putting away the electronics and making cleanup a snap with Dixie disposable tableware, my daughter and I will have some much needed reconnection time.
How are you going to go #DarkForDinner? I’d love to hear about your family dinner plans. Will you be using Dixie disposable tableware to make cleanup easier and make more time for family connection?
