In this day and age of "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle"...I know there are sometimes/some things that just aren't feasible...

1. What’s something whose disposable version has replaced its non-disposable version in your house?
2. What disposable item do you almost never use because you greatly prefer the non-disposable version?
3. If they could somehow create a disposable version of something that is currently not available in a disposable format, what would you like to see?
4. What disposable item do you feel the most guilty about using?
5. What disposables do you tend to use more than the usual amount before discarding?

In this day and age of "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle"...I know there are sometimes/some things that just aren't feasible...

1. What’s something whose disposable version has replaced its non-disposable version in your house? paper towels. I tried using regular microfiber towels and dish towels instead but they just didn't work as well for me. I buy the select-a-size paper towels, so at least most of the time I'm only using half-sheets.

2. What disposable item do you almost never use because you greatly prefer the non-disposable version? tampons. I use a Diva Cup instead (well, until becoming pregnant!)

3. If they could somehow create a disposable version of something that is currently not available in a disposable format, what would you like to see? can't really think of anything

4. What disposable item do you feel the most guilty about using? the plastic bags at the grocery store, especially since I have plenty of the reusable ones. I just always forget to bring them. At least we use the plastic bags for disposing of the litter box contents...

5. What disposables do you tend to use more than the usual amount before discarding? Swiffer dusters. I use them until they will no longer pick up any dust rather than change them out each time.

I have a few same ones ha ha!

1. What’s something whose disposable version has replaced its non-disposable version in your house? I hope I read this correctly but diapers! I know its a little eairy since baby isnt here yet but were opting for the cloth diapering route!

2. What disposable item do you almost never use because you greatly prefer the non-disposable version?
hnd towels, I know that its become common to get the disposable towels but I like my towels and I chage they out often enough to not be concerned with yuckys

3. If they could somehow create a disposable version of something that is currently not available in a disposable format, what would you like to see?
trash bags, I dont know how it would work but I hate putting so much plastic in landfills!

4. What disposable item do you feel the most guilty about using?
plastic grocery bags! I always for get to bring my reusable ones with me! and DH and I will go on a last min unplanned trip to the store so I forget! But I want to start holding onto them so I can just recycle them

5. What disposables do you tend to use more than the usual amount before discarding?
the swifer dusters, like Dani I keep using them untill they wont hold anymore! besides there kind of pricey!
