I gave up paper towels

I gave up paper towels. Who does this? More importantly, who writes about it? The day I told myself “no more paper towels”  was monumental. See, for me it represented well more than that white roll of tree sitting on my counter, it was about will power. I am a recovering paper towel junkie.

8-10 rolls a week, $70 a month. So I made up my mind and hid the roll along with the cute stand that accompanied it. It was replaced with the most adorable tea towels and cloth napkins. I’ve spent many an hour explaining my reasons, with some side eye judgement by a few. I have survived! Six months later,  now in place of the big white roll, sits the most adorable live green plant, and a gentle reminder that I can make a small difference on this planet. I can work to be a better me, starting with the smallest of changes. What’s next? Who knows! But I am confident I am capable! Happy tea towels to you!
