Choosing reusables when you can is a beautiful way to pamper the planet — and show off a little personal style at the same time!
For example, if every American uses a reusable shopping bag just ONCE a week this year, we’ll keep 16 billion bags out of landfills.
There’s a world of stylish reusables to check out, like these clever examples:
- Biodegradable, recyclable cotton napkins come on a perforated roll like paper towels, and they’re washable up to 6 times — perfect for picnics, portable lunches or casual dinner at home (ElleDécor.com loves them for summer entertaining).
- When you can, ditch the drab disposable in favor of your own classy spill-proof mug (or travel tea cup).
- And how about using your own utensils? Our friends at TheKitchn.com created a roundup of nifty reusables with a little something for everyone (and nothing for the trash can)!
