    Most definitely washing it and reusing it.  If fact, if you’re concerned with using fewer natural resources, get a metal spoon which can be washed and reused and infinite number of times.  The plastic does not biodegrade, so when you throw it out, it’s just going to sit in a landfill somewhere.
