Are you still using paper napkins at the dinner table? If you are, you should consider breaking this nasty habit ASAP. You can cut down substantially on the amount of waste you produce in your kitchen by using cloth napkins. They're perfect, as you don't throw them out after each use, and depending on how messy an eater you are, they can be good for plenty of uses before needing to be laundered. My favourite cloth napkins come from Ten Thousand Villages. They have such a wide selection of napkins (and other beautiful products) made by artists from many different countries, and should you visit the store, I guarantee you'll leave there with a unique collection to show off to guests. Besides their beautiful designs, I love that my napkins from Ten Thousand Villages are made by artisans in developing communities who are being paid a fair wage for their beautiful work. Do you use cloth napkins at home?
