Who needs Thanksgiving or the in-laws over for dinner as an excuse to bring out the cloth napkins? There's no need for a fancy dinner spread or a special occasion. Why not use cloth napkins every day? And while you'll spice up that morning cereal, you'll also prevent another napkin form finding its way into the garbage while saving a bit of the energy and trees that are used in paper production.
Cloth napkins are available at most department stores and major retailers like IKEA and Target. But to save more money and resources while adding a creative kick, make your own out of gently used sheets and fabrics.
