Paper napkins are very convenient, but they’re also very wasteful.

Waste Status

Not Recyclable Curbside. May be compostable depending on what they’ve been used to clean up. 


EASY: Refuse Paper Napkins

Part of our reducing waste journey needs to be learning how to refuse. If you get take-out from somewhere, make sure you mention that you don’t want any to go napkins or utensils.

Medium: Cloth Napkins

You can either make your own set of cloth napkins or purchase some pre-made ones. If you use a lot of napkins like I do, I suggest having a fair amount of them just so you always have some on hand if the others are in the laundry bin.
