Day 18 of going zero waste focuses on using cloth napkins instead of paper ones, but we can go beyond that to include rags instead of paper towels, too. Now, some people go as far as to give up toilet paper in lieu of a bidet and wash cloth, but I’m not sure I’m willing to take it that far. Now, I’ll be honest, I don’t really feel that bad about using paper towels and paper napkins because they end up in my compost bin, but it’s still good to get in the habit of not using disposable paper products. The last thing we need to be doing is cutting down trees, after all. This will be a short blog because I’ve already blogged a lot about switching from disposables to reusables, but Kathryn covers more details about the benefits and uses of cloth napkins in her Going Zero Waste blog. Have you made the switch, and if so, how do you feel about no longer using paper products?
