Cloth Napkins: the easiest zero waste swap there is!
Probably one of the easiest zero-waste alternatives to introduce to your lifestyle, cloth napkins are both practical and pretty! They come in a variety of colours and textures so you can adopt one that perfectly fits your taste. And don’t let yourself be swayed by tradition—you can start consuming less without spending a fortune. Start by treating yourself, then your family or loved ones… And eventually, your guests! You truly don’t need to buy 20 cloth napkins right off the bat.
Solid colours or patterns on your cloth napkin?
Of course, the first thing to consider when choosing cloth napkins is your personal taste and home decor. This will help you determine the colour scheme that works best with the ambiance you are trying to create and your personality. But there are also some practical aspects to consider, such as who will be using the napkins and when. For instance, if you have children—you know that meal times can get messy. So a napkin with dark colours and patterns will last longer as stains won’t be as visible on them.
Personalization is an option!
Sometimes it’s a little complicated to remember what belongs to whom—especially if you have a large family! Getting your cloth napkins embroidered with a monogram, name or even with a few words will ensure fewer mixups!
One cloth napkin = one tree saved, and another planted
Aside from saving trees when you use cloth napkins instead of their paper alternative, did you know that TSHU commits to planting a tree for each cloth napkin you purchase? You can learn more about this commitment in the ABOUT section of this website.
Giving cloth Napkins a trial run
Are you unsure that you’ll fall in love with cloth napkins right away? I understand that changing your habits can be intimidating, which is why we have sample cloth napkins available at a much, much lower rate. How come? Well, when the products aren’t 100% up to my standards because they are stained, imperfect or simply because I’ve decided not to put up a certain style for sale), I turn them into “orphans”—meaning that they are available at a reduced rate so you can test them out.
