One area we struggle to reduce waste in our house is with disposable napkins and paper towels. With Summer upon our heels – and barbeque season with it – I have decided it’s time to cut back on the use of disposables. I don’t think we’ll ditch the disposables overnight, but I want to take baby steps towards that end goal.
So of course I was thrilled to get to try out a set of reusable napkins and reusable paper towels from generationME!
Reusable Cloth Napkins
Meg has some really neat patterns for her napkins – they definitely aren’t your Grandma’s cloth napkins! The girls really love using them because they’re softer than disposable paper napkins and they work much better.
The reusable cloth napkins from generationME are made from soft, designer flannel so that you can choose a set that compliments your personal decor and personality. Each set comes with 6 solid color napkins and 6 patterned napkins.
All napkins are single-ply and measure just over 10″ by 10″. Mine did shrink a bit in the wash, but they held up nicely. The edges of the napkins are professionally serged to keep them looking pretty and useful.
Reusable Paper Towels
I also like how simple the reusable paper towels are. I’d like to stock up on these and keep them in a basket in the kitchen so they’re easy to grab.
They are made from soft, absorbent birds-eye cotton, also called diaper cloth because of its absorbency power. They even get more absorbent after washing!
Each reusable paper towel measures about 11″ by 11″ and mine also shrank slightly when I washed them. The edges on these are also professionally serged.
In addition to reusable paper towels and napkins, generationME also offers a variety of other eco-friendly products, such as:
- Cloth Diaper Accessories
- Laundry Products
- Wet Bags
- Napkins and Towels
- Mops and Sweepers
- Produce Bags
- Snack and Sandwich Bags
