Para di masabi na discriminating sa mga household help eh pwede siguro gumamit na lang ng disposable utensils di ba para tipid na rin sa dishwashing soap at time and effort at economical pa. LoL
Eto napansin ko, and it irritates me.
When we have children's parties and there's a theme, di ba usually disposable ang mga cups, table cloths etc etc?
I eventually discover that the help do not throw away the cups, plates, spoons & forks as per instruction, but - Wash, dry and bring home these disposables. I find this a waste of time (done during party time as the disposables are collected) & a waste of water & dishwashing liquid.
Ok yan in terms of the global advocacy to Recycle, recycle... But yun na nga, kahit sabihin mo to THROW AWAY disposables -- there will surely be help that can't get over the waste. Say: ok pa , sayang & recycle it --- though unmindful of the false economy thereof (time, water, d/washing liquid). Eh pag recycle sa house natin -- hello, germs.
So, again, it is what it is, practical hygiene & not discrimination: enforce strict separation of utensils.
Make it simple to enforce: physical separation and very noticeable differences in the utensils of family vs help.
