In honor of Earth Month, I've got three easy eco upgrades that will have you going for the green.
Swap out paper towels for cloth napkins
Elevate mealtimes and outdoor entertaining with cloth napkins, and save the paper towels for when you really need them. These hand-blocked Nova napkins from Serena & Lily ($38) have a beautiful, on-trend pattern that looks chic but also hides stains. Plus, they get better the more you wash them.
Know your notebooks
Not all notebooks are created equal! May Designs makes its notebooks with eco-friendly thread binding and waterproof canvas covers, meaning that the entire thing can go in the recycling bin. Considering how cute and customizable they are, though, you will have a hard time throwing yours away.
Ditch single-use dry cleaning plastic
With over 300 million pounds of the stuff ending up in landfills yearly, it's time to kick the habit. Green Garmento offers up one elegant solution. Designed as a four-in-one item, The Garmento goes from hamper to duffel to dry cleaning/garment bag. Drop your dry cleaning off in the duffel, and pick it up in the dry cleaning bag. Alternatively, let your dry cleaner know that you don't need plastic, and simply pick up your laundry in a reusable bag. The Green Garmento was featured in our POPSUGAR Must Have box for April — find out more!
