My family is down sick. It’s one of those head colds where all those hot teas and orange juices seem to bypass your stomach in order to head straight to your nose. And, as you can imagine, the tissue pile can quickly grow to gargantuan proportions.
So, I’ve decided that today for my zero waste challenge, I will begin addressing the disposable tissue issue. (See what I did there? I’m hilarious when I’m sick!) I’ve taken out my sewing machine, an old cotton sheet, and all my sewing bits and bobs. I’m working on loads of small blue squares of approximately the same size with nice little hemmed borders. When I get a stack, I’ve got a nifty folding technique that allows me to simulate the paper tissue pop-up.
These look fabulous, by the way, like little Mona Lisas that you blow your nose on.
Does being sick mean small forests perish? Or have you already figured out to cut your impact? What tricks do you wish to share? Please post your ideas in the comments below!
Until next time, keep that talk walking!
