mindfulness ~ the quality or state of being conscious or aware of something
For the past two years I have not put paper napkins into the kids’ lunches. In an effort to use as little paper as possible, I thought this was a great place to start. It was driving me nuts seeing all those napkins end up in the garbage everyday. Even though the paper they were made from was recycled, they were packaged in plastic and the manufacturing and delivery impact definitely wasn’t worth the continued purchase.
At first I packed cloth napkins I already had in the drawer for special occasions. After a while, I realized they were too big for everyday use for the kids and began looking for a suitable alternative. Something a little more kid friendly.
I came across People Towels through my search and went directly to the company website for a closer look at their profile and to see more inventory choices.
Based on the values of the company, their use of 100% organic cotton fabric and the smaller size of the napkin, I decided to give them a try and ordered a pack of five. When I received them they didn’t disappoint and the napkin dilemma for the kids was solved. With needing to make three homemade lunches every day, I have since bought about 15 more. The owl and bee are their favorites with the This is Not a Tree coming in a close third!
If you think this is something want to try, they are having a super sale right now and most of those are priced half off!
