Since everyone else is sharing their Earth Day eco tips today, I thought I would too. Rob and I try to be environmentally friendly and San Francisco makes it easy. We only drive once a week. Eat vegetarian mostly. Recycle. Drink tap water. Use reusable grocery bags. Special light bulbs. Buy organics. Yada, yada, yada. You've heard it before.
The one tip I love is using dishtowels instead of paper towels. There's a drawer full of dishtowels in the kitchen and the dirties get washed with our laundry each week. They're easy to grab anytime I'm cooking and last forever. I haven't bought a roll of paper towels in probably two years. Plus, they're pretty.
Need some motivation? Target has designer dishtowels by Dwell and Sur La Table has frenchie towels for $4.95.
PS: You know what is also good for the planet? Buying clothes from the EmilyStyle Tag Sale.
