Wow this journey with reusable products surely is growing! It has almost become addicting to see how many paper products you can cut out of your life and replace with something reusable. Napkins, paper towels, toilet paper, menstrual pads, diapers, wipes, tissues, dryer sheets and more, all can be replaced with a reusable option.
Perks of Going Reusable:
1. Even though you may have a higher initial investment, you will save money in the long run. Reusable products last for years and saves you from the constant purchases of disposable paper products
2. Better for the planet-think about all the trash that won’t be going to landfills. Think of all the plastic that won’t be in the oceans or other bodies of water for fish and other aquatic life to have to live with-it’s life threatening for them!
3. Safer materials are used in the making of reusable products. Plastic can lead to toxins in your food and in your body. Lots of products have harmful chemicals when producing them.
There is so many different things to try, so even if you aren’t comfortable with certain things, like reusable toilet paper, you might be more comfortable with reusable coffee filters instead. Nobody actually wipes any body part with it and it will simplify your coffee making routine anyways. So find something you are comfortable with and jump into the reusable world!
