Cloth napkins

I recently read that over the course of a person's life
he or she might use a grand total of 76650 paper napkins!
doing the math 3 meals a day for
365 days over a life span of 70 yrs

Statistics in my personal opinion are just that...numbers
True or not that sounds like an awful lot of paper napkins!

I am trying to make a change on our daily habits, we are converting from using paper napkins to cloth napkins.  I've been toying with the idea for a couple of months now and yesterday I finally bought some cloth napkins!  My only concern was the laundering system...but I guess I have to stock up on them and I will trow them in with my regular loads. I do laundry very often anyways!

I found these colorful napkins at one of my local thrift shops.  They were new (except for two that seemed to have been washed before) I paid a total of $4.65 for 16 napkins including the six rings those weren't new but I thought they went perfectly with the color napkins I found.

I am not sure if my 16 cloth napkins will make a change in my effort to go greener and leaving less footprints behind in this world but the kids are 
sure enjoying this change and I am happy I did!

What about you paper or cloth??


  1. Wow. I think you just converted me to cloth with that statistic. Time to go shopping! :)

  2. I've been thinking about that with paper towels. They are so convenient, but so terrible.

    I need to make the switch, then I worry about hygiene...Ahhh!

  3. Paper but I want to change to cloth.

  4. Well done! You are good in spreading the word around the world!

  5. I love this!!!!! Clau I will definitely try to do this not only for the planet but because I hate the feel of some napkins - weird right? lol!!

    Thank you for putting this up :)
