Good morning, dear readers. I have a question for you.
My next article for Backwoods Home Magazine will be on the subject of replacing everyday disposable items with their reusable counterparts. The idea is that if we wean ourselves off disposables and start incorporating reusable versions now, not only will this save money and reduce our garbage output, but it will be useful for if and when the bleep hits the fan because we'll already have our reusable items on hand.
So what I'd like to do is get your ideas for what kinds of disposable items you use on a regular basis. A short list might include:
• Paper napkins
• Paper plates
• Plastic cutlery
• Plastic wrap (Saran Wrap, etc.)
• Toilet paper
• Disposable razors
• Feminine hygiene
• Paper towels
• Disposable diapers
• Facial tissue
What else can you suggest? And if you have a reusable alternative for your item, please let me know that as well. This way we can all contribute to the article!
Many thanks for your input.
