Flannel Handkerchiefs

Handkerchiefs are a low-waste staple. Keep one in your pocket or purse to replace tissues and/or napkins. Tissue waste can really add up, particularly during cold and allergy season. Handkerchiefs are a convenient alternative and can be thrown in with your regular wash.

Handkerchiefs are a bit more advanced on the waste reduction spectrum because many people find them to be gross and unsanitary.

Here are some tips to transition into a handkerchief user.

  1. Carry your handkerchief in some sort of small pouch or case.
  2. Stick to tissues for particularly bad colds.
