Green December Day 5 - Paper Napkins

I stopped using… Paper napkins

Cotton napkins shouldn’t just be a thing for restaurants and fine dining. Switching over to reusable napkins have reduced the need to purchase disposable paper napkins. I purchased mine from Amazon for a fairly reasonable price considering I will never buy them again. To make things easier, I bought a mesh laundry bag from the dollarstore to collect the dirty napkins to throw in the wash together.



Reducing, reusing and recycling are not only placed in that order for alliteration. Believe it or not, reducing is written first because it is best to reduce the waste to begin with. Reuse things if possible and if that isn’t possible, recycle it. Buying reusable napkins tackles the need to purchase disposable napkins all together.
