What's the Greener Option? Cotton Balls

What's the Greener Option? Cotton Balls

While it's usually pretty simple to discern a green decision, sometimes we come to a fork in the eco-friendly road. Faced with two earth-friendly solutions, we have to decide which is the better choice? Well, we'd never really thought twice about it before, but as we were grocery shopping today we came across organic cotton balls. And that made us stop and think: is that green?

While organic cotton balls are surely more eco-conscious than their conventionally made counterparts, we think that reusable cotton ball alternatives are the better green decision.

We follow the school of thought that 'tis better to be reused than to be disposable (even though we're torn about the plate situation for our wedding reception). Given the choice, then, we'd likely pick the reusable cotton ball alternative over the organic cotton balls.

What about you?
