You use paper plates and paper napkins as everyday use in your home.

False. The only time paper plates have ever been an option is when we have more people coming over than we have plates (which is maybe once a year-if that). We also use cloth napkins.

Yes. Only for right now though. We just moved into our cabin 2wks and there is no kitchen or plumbing. I can't stand using paper products even though DH loves it.

False, we rarely ever use disposable plates and our napkins are a random assortment of dish cloths/towels.

False. We don't use them at all at home. The only time we've ever used them is when we've held parties in function rooms.

Totally false. We used paper plates and towels this weekend for the first time since we moved cross country because we were camping without running water. Cloth napkins and towels just work so much better and I'm way too cheap to buy paper towels anyways.

This is the way it is in our house, I don't get why dh cares about having paper plates, I'm the one who washes the dishes anyway, well my dishwasher does, but I load it.

False. We usually use cloth napkins (I usually buy one pack of paper napkins at the beginning of summer since we have more picnics and outdoor meals it just seems easier) and very rarely paper plates. Usually just for birthday cake when people are over.

we only do paper plates while dh is working, and only because he'll leave the dishes from his breakfast in the car (he eats on the run) and I have to go out in the middle of the night and get them. Paper is easier, and I do use exclusively paper, no Styrofoam in this house.

We are guilty of using plastic glasses on a semi regular basis. I buy a pack of Solo cups a few times a year. They aren't one time use though, we rinse and reuse, or wash and reuse as needed.

we use paper when we have alot of guests (think a party not just extra for dinner) paper napkins for now, because my cloth napkins/unpaper towels are still on the way.

False. We rarely use paper towels or plates. A roll of paper towels will last us 6 months or so? Sometimes longer. A pack of paper plates will last us almost 2 years. Just this last week we bought a new pack b/c we finally used up the pack we bought when we moved in 18 months ago. We never use paper napkins, we have cloth ones.

We only use paper plates for birthday parties and not even every time. We do use napkins/paper towels more often, but I am planning to look for some cloth napkins soon!
