I cringe when I see somebody break off a fresh paper towel, dry their hands, and proceed to toss the damp, clean cloth into the trash.
My husband recently told me of a family he read of that spends $1,000 a year on paper towels. You do the math.
I understand this isn’t a very fashionable post, but let’s all save some pennies and help the environment simultaneously. Reuse paper towels and napkins. If you use a paper product to dry your hands, hang it on a rack and let it dry for the next time; or even better, use a cotton hand towel.
