Tear off cotton napkins, novel idea, right?
Only at the Natural Products Expo West can you find innovated AND eco-friendly products under one very large roof.
See, I have this issue with single-use waste such as plastic silverware and paper towels and the belief that everything needs to be disposable.
If everything is thought of as disposable then why care or take care of anything?

My second favorite product found at the Natural Products Expo West were tear-off cotton napkins on a roll. Although these cotton napkins are disposable-they are washable as well.

- birthday parties
- in my kitchen instead of paper towels
