Instead of soft facial tissues which are made from virgin wood pulp, consider cotton handkerchiefs. Men’s handkerchiefs are available in most department stores. Women’s handkerchiefs are making a comeback online as more people are thinking green. Visit the Vermont Country Store (vermontcountrystore.com), Bumblebee Linens (bumblebeelinens.com) or Amazon. And they make lovely gifts! Or you can purchase green tissues which are made from bamboo or sugarcane pulp, which are rapidly renewable. One online source is Who Gives a Crap (whogivesacrap.org).
