no more paper towels

so my decision to go ‘low-impact’ last week has resulted in my first step: no more paper towels.  i bought a bunch of cloth napkins and dish towels (we already had a few, but we definitely need more now) and now use only those when eating and cleaning up around the kitchen/house.  i also discussed this w/ my wife, and how it would impact her as well, and she was surprisingly supportive.  she always is about these things, knowing that it’s very important to me and also understanding that it’s really everyone’s responsibility to try to make these types of changes.  the key is to make it so that it isn’t too inconvenient.  paper towels and only having one car in the family isn’t too drastic – there will surely be more difficult changes in the future.
