good post

Thank you!


good info (I totally need to break down and get one of these!). I also send my boys to school with there water or juice in these safe BPA free bottles (cute graphics in non-toxic paints too.. bonus) which saves them lots of disposable containers, and lots of money too!

Ariane, Thank you for sharing this video... I had not seen it. People have to change their habits a lot to do what these advocates are saying. I come from a family who recycled everything but as an Adult, I find myself not wanting to take the time if it's not easy. And I am not agreeing that giving up paper napkins or paper towels cuts down sigificantly on waste. You still have to wash the cloth napkins and that uses resources like water, electric and soap.

Hey John,

Thanks so much for stopping by! I agree these ladies show extreme examples...but the goal of limiting garbage is a worthy one : ) I also won't be giving up paper towels completely...I always use them to clean toilets and litter boxes, and nasty things like that.

But since I already use washcloths and sponges, using the cloth or a sponge to pick up a simple spill or to wipe the counters (instead of using paper towels) is a pretty easy way to cut back on paper towels.
