I had to use a few paper towels today in the kitchen today. I’ve noticed that paper towels are probably my biggest source of waste. As we wrap up the next two days and beyond, I want to start exploring ways that I can cut down on my use towels. Though I am bummed that I had to use several paper towels today, it is empowering to know what I consume too much of and that there are exciting options to cut back on them.
Also, I know not everyone celebrates Christmas but is anyone else struggling with relatives calling you and asking, “What do you want for Christmas?” This whole experience has turned me off to the season of giving… On the bright side, my family does a themed gift exchange every year and this year I convinced everyone that the theme should be handmade/local so hopefully, there will be less waste. Usually, its just garbage gifts wrapped in garbage wrapping paper.
