naughty gelato

We took the kids to have some yummy gelato after dinner. As we were eating our cookies and cream we realized the packaging was plastic. Wait a minute! Why? When you go for a scoop at most ice cream places you get a paper cup, right?

Ciao Bella was serving plastic #5 and a little plastic gelato spoon. As my husband said, "guess we'll see this on the beach in hawaii!" (see my post on the world's largest dump).

I am definitely going to inquire with the company and see what silly reasons they give for this. Not that the other ice cream shops are all doing the very best things (are those recycled paper cups? can they be composted?), but plastic just seems like a bad idea.

Did I say the gelato was really good though?
