Please help Sustainable Fairfax and the Town of Fairfax achieve our goal of Zero Waste by 2020! Simply follow this link and take our brief survey. We truly appreciate your time in helping us with this important project.
The next Green Tips Blog will be posted in a week. In the meantime can you guess what I got for Christmas? In my last blog about using cloth towels instead of paper, I confessed that I use Kleenex, one of the least sustainably produced brands of face tissues. Well, much to my surprise and delight I got hankies for Christmas. In addition to a collection of vintage hankies from my mum and a friend, my mum also gave me a Kleenex style box of reusable organic cotton tissues.
The cute box is made of waterproofed cardboard and has a drawer for the used tissues. Plus it is both waterproof and compostable. The tissues are soft and petite. While looking to see where to purchase more I discovered, via facebook, that the company, Better For Grownups, just went out of business. You still might find some on Amazon. They were a division of Better For Babies, which is still in business.
I’m enjoying using my hankies. Maybe you can too. Do you have any tucked away in a drawer somewhere?
And don’t forget to take the survey. We really do need your feedback. Thanks!
