The family reunion turned out to be great fun, and instead of using compostable silverwear and plates, we opted for reusables. All the dishes fit into one dishwasher load, and for 31 family members, including kids, there was one bag of trash (I admit, someone else brought Solo cups that had to be thrown out and stuff comes wrapped in paper and plastic). Even so, I still found this event to be a good motivator for a pat on the back and more eco-friendly maneuvers at my next group event.
