Ron Goldenberg, who owns a store for disposable tableware in central Israel, says he does not own multi-use dinnerware or cookware at all. “If you are into the environmental stuff then don’t eat on disposable plates, but I live now, and all this environmental stuff is no concern of mine,” he told Calcalist in a recent interview. Using disposables, he says, “the moment you finish eating you put everything in the trash including the tablecloth, and you just sit back and relax.”

A 2014 survey by Israeli business information group Coface BDi estimated sales of disposables and plastic tableware in Israel at around $124 million (NIS 450 million) annually. This year, BDi estimated that annual sales had reached $187 million (NIS 680 million), a 51% growth in four years.
