Sometimes it's hard to be green. I try but I still use a lot of paper towels. I have 3 kids and there are tons of hand washes and messes that need cleaned up. I saw an article about putting out a basket of towels and fabric napkins and see if you could reach for those before going for the paper towel. I am gonna try it... and of course I had to add some cute fabric to make a few of them pretty.
