My friend and coworker Elizabeth and I are each other's zero waste cheerleaders. Rarely a day goes by that we don't stop by one another's desk to share a story, idea, zero waste trick, or swap homemade or homegrown things we think the other might like.
One thing she does that works so well is carry a linen tea towel with her pretty much at all times. She uses it as a napkin, kitchen towel, hand dryer, spill wiper, produce carrier, and more - though not all at the same time, of course, and she has two so she can rotate a clean one in and out. This photograph beautifully illustrates how useful one can be.
