Napkins & Tissues

Instructions

Put them in the compost bin. Well done! :)

Alternatives

Use reusable cloth napkins and handkerchiefs instead. When you do buy napkins or tissue, look for 100% recycled content and/or Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified.

Facts

Napkins and tissue made from recycled material are easy to find and is usually comparable in price to paper made from virgin material. Recycled paper not only leaves forests in place, but it also requires less energy and water to create than paper made from virgin material.
