Cloth napkins are a great way to cut household waste! They last for years and years, eliminating the need to ever buy disposable paper napkins (often bleached, and wrapped in plastic) again. You save money in the long run as well! They don't need to be fussy - let them get wrinkled, soft, and comfortable for every day use.
*A helpful tip is to assign a different napkin ring to each household member. Often your napkin really isn't that messy after a meal, so put your assigned napkin ring on your napkin and keep it handy for your next meal. You can often use the same napkin for several meals before it needs to be washed, saving energy and water.
