Today’s green living tip: use cloth napkins. By replacing paper napkins with cloth napkins, you’ll reduce the amount of garbage generated from these, every single day. It’s easy to use cloth napkins when your household is one or two people but what to do with a house-full of dirty mouths?
Designate a specific color or pattern for each member of your household – and have two or three cloth napkins for each person. Use them until they’re dirty, then toss in the regular laundry load. Cloth napkins don’t need to be replaced and washed after every meal. Look for 100% cotton napkins because they’re more absorbent than polyester. (Here are mitered cloth napkins made for Thanksgiving – with an old Ralph Lauren skirt!)
There’s no garbage and now the family mealtime is a little fancier. Try cloth napkins today!
Do you use cloth napkins? Was it an easy switch to make from paper napkins?
