Do you ever go back and see where you were a year ago???
We sometimes forget …forizzle.
Here I was a year ago, doing good promoting green living. I am still doing good, but I have not been pushing the GOOD. And that may be bad.
I may be the demise of the quicker picker upper.
or possibly I exaggerate just a bit.
Since we stopped using these: way back here HERE
We keep them on the kitchen table for all meals, snacks and feasts. (I should cut back on the feasting part)
I sincerely apologize to the paper towel/napkin manufacturers for their decline in sales this year.
Not really. Do you think they can sense my sarcasm???
But guess what? By switching to cloth napkins we can save loads of paper (trees) and think of it as ‘less’ in our landfills.
some facts from my Green Book:
On paper towels:
“A decrease in U.S. Household consumption of just THREE rolls per year would save 120,000 tons of waste and $4.1 million in landfill dumping fees.”
On paper napkins:
“If each person used just ONE fewer napkins per day, it would save about 150 million of them from the trash.”
And the washing/water/soap part? Nuttin’ to it. I throw mine in with loads of clothes as we use them. I am not using more water or making extra loads of wash. You can purchase these babies at goodwill/thrift stores, they don’t need to match. REALLY!
If you do this little act of kindness, don’t be shocked when you are wandering around nature one day and a tree reaches out and hugs YOU. Just watch out for the sappy ones. They like to leave their mark on you.
Now about those darn nasty paper plates….don’t get me started…I’ll share my thoughts on that another day.

Yes, that is my original quote. 🙂 Don’t hate.
The view from up here is pretty good, pretty good…you know, from my high horse!
