I have two young children, a 6 month old baby girl and 2.5 year old boy. People are often shocked when I explain that both of them were/are in cloth diapers! The thought may make some break out into a cold sweat, but it seemed like the natural decision for our family, as cutting back on waste is priority for us.
As with all changes, it took awhile until we got into the habit, and now, we're tackling moving away from our dependency on paper towels.
First, for those times where they are the best option, try these Recycled Paper Towels from Seventh Generation. Made from 100% recycled paper, they minimize the use of virgin wood pulp.
Moving on from paper, are these biodegradable cellulose cleaning cloths by Full Circle. Made from plant based cellulose, they are not only reusable but dishwasher safe.
Why not grab a pair of pinking shears and cut your own terry cloth cloths with this tutorial from My Merry Messy Life.
Similarly, try these inexpensive sack cloth options from One Good Thing by Jillee.
Lastly, for the avid seamstress, these plastic snap options from That Short Girl's Blog are fantastic!
There is something for everyone!
