Re-Play has been a household star in the tableware industry since their conception 25 years ago. They have designed unique plates, cups, utensils and bowls by using recycled milk jugs in an enormous range of colours. Not only are they repurposing discarded materials that could otherwise end up in landfills, but they are sourcing all their materials in the United States and producing all their goods there too! Proudly made in the USA means that Canadians and Americans are purchasing tableware that has a minimal carbon-footprint compared to their counterparts that are made in China.
We love that Re-Play tableware can be spotted instantly in any store, on my table or in the hands of any child! Their signature rainbow colours have caught the attention of everyone-- who doesn't feel a but more cheerful, a bit more warm-hearted when they see a rainbow when they open their cupboard?
The amazing thins is, it turns out that the rainbows don't just make us happy, they affect our perceived taste and flavour of food
. Studies have shown that just by changing the colour of plate can change your eating habits
! For example, by matching the colour of your dishes to your food, you're more inclined to eat more, whereas contrasting colours can make you eat less.
With this information, what does this mean about the tableware you use in your household? What kind of dishes make mealtime more appealing for picky kids? These studies show us that our emotions, and the colours that stimulate those emotions, can really make a difference at mealtime. This kind of information doesn't come has a big surprise to a lot of parents out there. We've all been around those kids that have a new favourite colour every month, or a colour they they HAVE to wear, or that one crayon all the kids fight over? Why not make dinnertime, lunchtime and breakfast exciting, fun and something to look forward to by bringing out your child's favourite colour!
When holidays roll around, like birthdays, Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving or Halloween, we all want to be those parents with the best decor. A lot of us want to perfect the party's theme, create an unforgettable or instagramable moment. Since Re-Play dishes come in over 20 different colours you can find the perfect plates, bowls or cups to match your theme without filling up the landfill with paper or Styrofoam dishes. Since Re-Play is also so affordable, rethinking your single-use dishes doesn't feel like a big leap. I know what some must be thinking, what about doing all those dishes ?! Great news for you! Re-Play is totally dishwasher safe ! Just because it's eco-friendly doesn't mean it has to be inconvenient!
