How to keep a green, vegan kitchen

How to keep a green, vegan kitchen

Along those same lines, I've pretty much banished paper products from my kitchen. I use cloth napkins for meal times (they're so much prettier, and a snap to sew — they make for great gifts as well!) and paper towels have been replaced by cotton rags. We have two types: "Nasty rags" are for floor spills, doggy accidents, and other dirty work. They're made of old bath towels. "Nice rags" are for kitchen counters, dining table clean-up and other not-so-messy messes. These are cotton dish towels, store bought, in a variety of fun colors and patterns. Even factoring in the energy and water cost of washing cloth towels, they're still the environmentally prudent choice (by a significant margin). However, if you're not quite ready to let go of paper for good (or for your next party), the brands Natural Value and Seventh Generation have got you covered with Earth-friendly products.
