Make Family Napkin Rings from Yogurt Containers

So you've made the switch to cloth napkins - congratulations! Mother Earth thanks you. And while you may not mind using your toddler's partially used napkin, the rest of the family might. Kathleen has solved this problem with an easy diy project using yogurt containers and now every family member can keep tabs on their own napkin easily.

Kathleen writes: Since we've moved to Switzerland, and we have to pay for each bag of garbage, I'm even more motivated to use fewer paper products. We use cloth napkins and little wash clothes to clean up at mealtimes. The problem was our napkins were always wandering around the table getting mixed up between meals. That's especially bad when we have guests because most people probably don't want to use the napkin that a three-year-old used for dinner last night.

Check out Kathleen's blog post on laowai to hear how she made these quick rings as well as utilized her recycling. Great idea!

Thanks Kathleen!
