I recognize that while this may not get me awarded with the nobel peace prize, it is my humble contribution to reducing my global footprint, being green, and living out the reduce, reuse, recycle mindset. This all came about with Jen Hatmakers, “Seven” study I am just wrapping up with some friends. It was sobering, eye-opening and challenging, I’m walking away with lots of ideas.
Below is a picture of washed, dried, and smoothed out, for lack of a better word, Viva paper towels. I accidentally discovered this one day when folding clothes, a rouge paper towel had made its way into the wash and stayed completely intact through the process. These paper towels are probably the most expensive on the market, they clean well and we have gotten used to the quality. Now we save any that aren’t completely nasty and wash with a load of towels.
They are not suitable for tea with the queen, pre OR post washing, but they can definitely be used for clean up, garage towels, and even napkins. I don’t think they could last another washing but for now I will keep using them at least twice. These are the people’s paper towels, the Peterson People anyway:)
